IOPTC Plans Building Oil Transfer Turbines

(Tuesday, October 9, 2018) 18:04

TEHRAN (Shana) -- The CEO of the Iranian Oil Pipeline & Telecommunications Company (IOPTC) said the company was planning to tap domestic capabilities to build turbines that were previously purchased from European and American suppliers.

Abbasali Jafari Nasab expressed optimism that Iran would be self-sufficient in production of the turbines which are widely used in oil pipelines across the country.

Addressing a meeting on Monday, the official said: “We have so far reached relative self-sufficiency in production of American turbines.”

He said the sanctions were an opportunity for domestic manufacturers, adding IOPTC was under the impression that by indigenizing items, their support would be more accessible domestically.
