Iran has unveiled what it says is the world’s most powerful natural-gas driven automobile engine:

‘TEHRAN, Feb. 7 (MNA) – The world’s most powerful natural-gas-based car engine was unveiled on Saturday by the Iranian carmaker Iran Khodro under the intellectual property of the Islamic Republic of Iran. According to IRINN, the engine is to be installed on Iran Khodro’s newest product Samand Soren ELX. Iran Khodro CEO Manouchehr Manteqi said that all the design and development stages of the engine have been conducted in the company’s research center. The engine is turbocharge type, with 150hp of power and has passed EuroIV standard requirements, he said.’

Then Mehr News reports that Iran will build a wind power plant at Gwadar Port on the Gulf of Oman in Pakistan’s Baluchistan Province:

‘ Iran to build wind power plant in Pakistan
TEHRAN, Feb. 7 (MNA) – The managing director of SANIR Company, affiliated to Iran’s Energy Ministry, here on Saturday announced that Iran in collaboration with a Pakistani private company will construct a 50 MW wind power plant in the form of build, own, operate (BOO) contract in Pakistan.

According to the Mehr News Agency, Reza Ebadzadeh said that in addition to the project Iran has won the tender of a $50 million 220/132 KV electricity station, and a 120 Km 220 KV power transmission line on which Iran is working.

He added that in accordance with a $65 million deal with the Ministry of Water and Power of Pakistan, Iran has vowed to develop the electricity network in Pakistan’s Gwadar Port by transmitting 100 MW electricity via Chabahar border.”

Now if only Iran would go for green energy itself, instead of that dirty nuclear stuff, it would be much better off and so would the world.
