MAPNA Group is a group of Iranian companies involved in construction and installation of energy production machinery, including boilers, gas and steam turbines, electrical generators, as well as industrial scale petroleum processing installations, railway locomotives and wind power. The company initially named Iran Power Plant Projects Management Company (MAPNA) that now is recognized as MAPNA Group was founded in 1993 with the aim of developing indigenous knowledge production capacity for petroleum facilities, power plants and other industrial facilities, and as a contract management company.


Historically large scale industrial installation in Iran had been supplied by foreign companies on a turn-key basis; the Iran Power Plants Management Company (MAPNA) was founded in February 1993 by Tavanir, IDRO and the Saba Investment Company to manage power plant, petroleum plant and railway projects.[2] The group of companies was instrumental in developing Iranian manufacturing capacity of main and auxiliary equipment for power plants, and of plant construction. The company entered into licensing and technology transfer agreements for gas and steam turbines including turbine blades and control systems, Heat recovery steam generators, compressors and electrical generators as well as railway locomotives.[2]

In 2005, the company was in the top dozen companies on the Tehran Stock Exchange, with a value of over $1 billion.[citation needed]By 2008, Mapna Group had built or was constructing over 60 projects of total value €17 billion, including power generation schemes with an installed capacity of more than 45GW representing 86% of Iran's internal electrical energy supply.[3]

The company was the forth largest on the Tehran Stock Exchange by June 2010, with a market capitalisation of $2.6 billion.[4] In October 2010, Mapna was given a contract for the supply of 1000MW of wind power capacity, as part of a government project to install 2.1GW of renewable energy capacity.[5]

In 2012, the Iranian Offshore Oil Company signed a contract worth $6.6 billion, with MAPNA in order to develop the Forouz B gas field in the Persian Gulf, and generate electricity from the produced natural gas.[6]
