Possessing unique capabilities in design and engineering, utilizing home-made software besides the most updated, technical software in the world, and employing experienced experts in different sections of design comprising the basic, the process and equipment, the mechanical (pressure part and non-pressure part), the water chemistry, water purification technologies and material, the electrical, the control and instrumentation, and the piping, MBEC as a cohesive coherent and coordinated company designs projects and equipment, sticking to the principle of meeting clients’ technical needs.

Pivotal role of design department and product development in the company to improve the technical specifications, performance, and efficiency of the current products as well as to develop new products using feedback having been received from clients and accomplished projects, and via definition and conduct of R&D projects in parallel with identification and achievement of today’s world knowledge and technology leads to MBEC’s growing trend toward fulfillment of clients’ demands to a large deal of flexibility. The department has been supported in computational power by a strong infiniband cluster blade server of 120 cores together in parallel to do massive numerical simulations for R&D design projects. The presence of high-tech hardware facilities in the fast computational center of MBEC provides a unique capability for conducting complicated simulations in combustion, heat transfer, and stress analysis.

A technology transfer license agreement for design and supply of HRSGs was signed between MBEC and DOOSAN companies in 2003. The experience thereby gained in design and shared execution of a number of CCPP projects with DOOSAN, as per a consortium at the time, has resulted in an invaluable technical, technological, and practical wealth. Relying on that experience and wealth and also strengthening and advancing them in all sections of design department and development of product, this company has until now succeeded to and deliver around 100 HRSG units downstream of GTs in CCPPs, 34 industrial water tube boilers, and 52 deaerators, delivering them as its important key products to market, making a significant contribution thereby to such industries as power, oil, gas, and petrochemical plants, and maintaining and promoting its position as the greatest source of supply for various types of steam generators and boilers inside Iran and in its neighboring region’s markets.

Keeping environmental regulations and human rights standards noticeably receives MBEC’s attention in products design and projects and MBEC assures its customers of its loyalty to the creation of a sustained value thereof.
