West Mazandaran Single Shaft Combined Cycle Power Plant (which is also known as Mazandaran 2 Power Plant) is the first single shaft class F combined cycle power plant in the country comprising one class F gas unit, with a capacity of 307 MW, and one steam units with a capacity of 140 MW at site conditions. At this power plant which produces a total of about 447 MW of power, V94.3 gas turbines (manufactured by Ansaldo Energia) and the steam turbines have been used.

According to the contract, the power plant has been constructed in two sections of main equipment and BOP. The main equipment of the first section has been designed and financed by Ansaldo Energia Company of Italy with the assistance of domestic contractors. The common (general) section has been designed and procured merely by domestic contractors.

The power produced at this plant is transferred to the nationwide network through a 230 kV station.

Gas and gas oil are the fuel needed by West Mazandaran Power Plant: gas is the main fuel and gas oil is the substitute fuel. Construction of the gas section of the plant started on 9 October 2015 and it will delivered to the client provisionally by 2017 and permanently by 2018.
