A Dena Plus rolls off the production line which opened on Dec. 16, 2017.
A Dena Plus rolls off the production line which opened on Dec. 16, 2017.

Iran Khodro (IKCO) has opened a production line for two new car models, including one jointly produced by France’s Peugeot SPA.  

The first Peugeot 207 and Dena Plus sedans rolled off the production line near Tehran on Saturday during a ceremony attended by Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, Iranian news agencies reported.

Dena Plus is an upgraded version of the Dena sedan which Iran Khodro claims offers better safety, having two more airbags.

Peugeot 207 is the same as the Peugeot 207i, with a cargo compartment added to it. Iran Khodro produced about 15,000-20,000 units of Peugeot 207i in 2011 before production stopped the next year when Iran came under intensified Western sanctions.

The model, a supermini produced from 2006 to 2014, is based on the platform of the predecessor model, Peugeot 206, which was replaced by the Peugeot 208 in 2012.

PSA has signed production deals worth 700 million euros with Iran, while Renault has announced a new plant investment to increase its production capacity in Iran to 350,000 vehicles a year.

The French company has yet to start production of the Peugeot 2008 in Iran despite the launch of an assembly line in the country back in March.

As per the joint venture called the Iran Khodro Automobiles Peugeot (IKAP), 70% of parts for Peugeot 2008 will be supplied by Iranian manufacturers. The car’s body will also be produced by an IKCO subsidiary.

The deal requires production of more than 30,000 units this year but only four Peugeot 2008s have been produced so far, with IKCO having to import pre-owned cars for delivery from France.

Since the lifting of sanctions in January 2016, French automakers have piled into Iran’s resurgent market, helping turn around a period of slipping sales which occurred when they left the country in 2012.

On Saturday, Fars news agency cited data released by Renault as showing year-on-year growth of 54% in sales to Iran where the automaker sold 144,862 cars in the year up to November.

With US President Donald Trump having put the future of the landmark nuclear deal in doubt, Iran’s Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade officials have tried to give assurances that the new contracts with the French automakers were watertight.

Both Renault and Peugeot withdrew from Iran in 2012 when the country came under the Western sanctions.

Deputy Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade Mohsen Salehinia said last month he was optimistic about foreign companies holding their ground in case the Americans toughened their measures against Iran.

German industrial group Siemens is about to undertake financing rail and power plant projects worth 3 billion euros in Iran, a senior Iranian official says.

“On a trip to Germany, we had discussions about Siemens’ participation in Iran’s railway and power plant projects,” Deputy Minister of Road and Urban Development for International Affairs Asghar Fakhriyeh-Kashan said on Tuesday.

In the rail sector, Iran is going to buy a number of wagons from Siemens for use on a high-speed line between Tehran, Qom and Isfahan, he said. Siemens will also cooperate on providing signaling equipment and installing communication signs.

“Through financing a number of construction projects, Siemens plans to enter into a joint venture with Iran’s MAPNA company both in the power plant and locomotive manufacturing sector in order to boost domestic production,” he said.

Last month, the Export-Import Bank of China (EXIM) signed a $1.5 billion deal to finance the electrification of a high-speed rail line between the Iranian cities of Tehran and Mashhad.

EXIM’s Vice President Sun Ping said in Tehran that the institution had provided loans for 26 Iranian projects in the electricity, petrochemicals, non-ferrous metals, oil and gas sectors, worth $9 billion.

China Railway Group Limited (CREC) is carrying out the $1.8 billion electrification of the high-speed rail link between Tehran, Qom and Isfahan.

Iran has announced plans to splurge up to $25 billion over the next 10 years on the modernization and expansion of its railway network.

Siemens was one of the first major companies to agree on a deal with Iran after the lifting of sanctions in January 2016, signing a $1.6 billion memorandum of understanding on Iran’s rail infrastructure and a long-term roadmap with MAPNA on the power sector.

The agreement included a license for manufacturing F-class gas turbines in Iran, under which more than 20 gas turbines and associated generators will be delivered over the next four to five years.

A sum of 300,000 Renault cars will be built in a five-year term and first products will enter the market in the final months of the next Iranian calendar year (started March 21, 2018), senior IDRO official said.

Head of Iran’s Industrial Development and Revolution Organization (IDRO) Mansour Moazami made the remarks on the sidelines of a ceremony held to celebrate a contract between Renault, Industrial Development and Renovation Organization of Iran (IDRO) and Partov Negin Naseh Holding Company.

‘We pursue promotion of domestically made products through joint venture with international brands,’ the official noted.

He said: ‘Up to 66 million Euro will be invested at the first phase of the project.’

Meanwhile, Executive Vice President and Chief Competitive Officer in Renault Group Thierry Bolloré called the contract with Industrial Development and Renovation Organization of Iran (IDRO) and Partov Negin Naseh a remarkable deal in one of the most strategic countries of the world .

Based on the contract, Renault will sponsor the project in all phases, including investment, technology transfer, engineering and export, Bolloré added.

Germany’s Volkswagen and Iran’s car manufacturer Mammut Khodro are planning to launch a new joint production line to make cars in the near future.

Talking to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Saturday, Mohsen Salehi-Nia Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade for Industries Affairs said the preliminary measures have been taken to launch the joint production line for the new car.

Salehi-Nia added that no agreement has been inked so far regarding the issue, but once the deal signed between representatives of the two sides, the agreement could be considered as one of the achievements made by the Islamic Republic following the nuclear deal and implementation of the landmark international agreement, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

On July 4, Volkswagen announced that the company will begin the sale of vehicles in Iran in August.

Initially, Volkswagen’s Tiguan and Passat models are to be imported under a contract concluded with the Iranian automotive company Mammut Khodro.

The Volkswagen brand will thus again have a presence in the Iranian market after more than 17 years, and is systematically developing further worldwide market potential.

‘By returning to Iran, the Volkswagen brand is filling in another blank spot on the global automotive map. We are thus strengthening our international presence still further. At the same time, we are taking our very latest models with premium features to our Iranian customers’, Anders Sundt Jensen, project manager for the Iranian market at Volkswagen, said.

Director for monitoring group on investment contracts of Thermal Electric Generation Specialized Company Jamshid Sajdei said on Thursday that contracts to generate 5,000 megawatts electricity have been convened with investors and companies from Turkey.

Sajdei said currently two sites to generate 2,000 megawatts electricity in the cities of Saveh and Zahedan handed over to Turkish company and other related affairs are underway.

He also acknowledged about signing memorandum of understanding (MoU) with three companies from South Korea, Japan and France to generate 3500 megawatts electricity and said that the MoU have been signed with the three companies and negotiations to sign contract is underway.

Sajdei said that time period for guaranteed purchase electricity from foreign investors is determined in the contracts and upon agreement and contract, the investors may sell their generated electricity in free market or sell their power plant to the government after expiration of the period.

Yazd province in attracting foreign investors and preparing necessary infrastructures to absorb investment, especially in the fields of solar energy and generating electricity is among flag-bearers provinces of Iran.

Countdown to the signing of the $4.8 billion oil contract between Iran and the international consortium led by Total has started.

Being the first to be signed in the new format of Iran’s oil contracts which lead to technology transfer to Iran, the Total deal is considered a turning-point to start a new era in the Iranian oil industry.

The deal is to be signed by Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh, the Total and other beneficiary managers.

The primary agreement to develop South Pars 11 project was signed on November 8, 2016 between the NIOC and the mentioned consortium, including the Total, the Chinese National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), Petropars, with the presence of Zangeneh, President Middle-East and North Africa of Total Exploration and Production Stephane Michel, and CEO of CNPC Middle East Zhu Junfeng.

The deal is the biggest natural gas contract Iran has signed after the January 2016 nuclear deal with G6 to lift the sanctions on Iran.

Deputy Head of Tehran Sewage Treatment Company for Engineering and Development Affairs Farhad Jalali Amin says Islamic Development Bank will meet 125 million euro of the credit needed for Tehran sewage treatment projects.

Jalali Amin further told reporters that the credit will be spent on the project for establishment of a tunnel for transfer of sewage in the western part of the capital city (the Western Tehran Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and on sewage treatment center in Southwestern part of the city.

The official said the IDB has thus far paid portion of the cash and the rest will be provided gradually as the project advances.

Deputy Minister of Petroleum Marzieh Shahdaie says agreement with French Total Company in the petrochemical sector will result in $2 billion investment.

Ministry of Petroleum on Tuesday quoted Shahdaie as saying, “In case of a final agreement, Total will invest up to two billion dollars in Iran’s petrochemical industries.”

Outlining talks between National Petrochemical Company (NPC) of Iran and French Total Company for establishment of new petchem facilities in Iran, Shahdaie said based on the latest talks, the petrochemical facilities will operate with the capacity to yield about 2.2 million tons of petrochemical and polymer products annually.

She announced that for the time being, agreement has been reached for establishment of two facilities for production of a special grade of polyethylene, each facility running with 500,000 tons annual production capacity.

Shahdaie added that furthermore, agreement has been reached for construction of a cracker ethane facility to turn ethane into ethylene – 1,200,000 tons a year production capacity.

The NPC top official said the most important specification of contract with Total and its likely partnership in petrochemical projects is transfer technology for production of a special kind of polyethylene in Iran.

Iran’s annual petrochemical production capacity stands at 62 million tons and by the end of this year (March 20, 2018), the figure will reach 72 million tons when six new projects come into stream. The total value of net sale of the products will rise up to $17 billion.

National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) and an international consortium, led by French Total company, signed Iran’s new oil contract in the post-sanction era for development of the phase 11 of South Pars.

Under the $4.8 billion gas deal, 56 million cubic meters of gas will be added to Iran’s capacity to extract gas from South Pars gas field common with Qatar.
