The facilities are located in the cities of Khonj, Jahrom, Safa Shahr, Naein and Kashan which are cities located in various parts of the country. 

Each of the facilities are equipped with 4 25-megawatt turbo-compressors which were installed within a period of 30 months with IRR11,600b of investment. 

The projects were all carried out by Iranian developers.
