The U.S. remains perhaps the strongest supporter of bringing Ukraine into NATO. That support obviously has had no impact on Ukraine’s dealings with Iran, against which Washington has applied economic sanctions.
Ukraine’s state-owned Zorya-Mashproekt, a gas turbine design complex from Mykolaiv, will begin delivering power engineering equipment to Iran Power Plant Project Management (MAPNA) in August, a spokesman for the Ukrainian concern told Interfax.
The five-year contract covers delivery of 58 turbocompressors totaling 172.5 million euro. Zorya-Mashproekt won the contract at a tender in 2008.
The two companies have signed a framework agreement on delivery of 42 turbogenerators rated at 25 megawatts each and worth a total of 150 million euro. The Ukrainian concern has already begun purchasing materials and components under the order, the spokesman said.
Zorya-Mashproekt also has a contract concluded in 2007 on delivery of power equipment for Iran’s IGAT-7 gas pipeline now under construction.
