IRAQ | Mainstream Electricity Sector

This thread Will contain news & updates regarding : mainstream electricity generation projects (including gas and fossil fuels,hydro) , transmission and the national grid.


============================================================




Turkish 'powership' sails to Iraq

ISTANBUL - A former freighter equipped with an on-board power plant left Turkey for Iraq Saturday to help plug an electricity shortfall in the southern city of Basra, the Anatolia news agency reported.

The Karadeniz Powership Dogan Bey is one of two ships ordered from Turkey by Iraq's electricity ministry and is expected to become operational before the end of the month.

With an output of 144 megawatts, the ship will supply power to the Umm Qasr port where it will dock, transferring the surplus into Basra's power grid.

The second ship -- an engineless barge -- will be towed to the city later in the year.

Together, the two ships will meet about 30 percent of Basra's power need, the report said.

Karadeniz Holdings has been a long-term energy partner for Iraq, supplying the war-ravaged country with electricity via two power plants in Turkey's southeast since 2003.

Iraq aims at 27,000 megawatts in four years

The government is determined to boost power output to 27,000 megawatts in four years, said Electricity Minister Kareem Waheed.

Waheed said the target to produce the massive amount of electricity that will meet Iraq’s domestic needs is attainable.

The ministry is known to have missed almost all its previous targets despite billions of dollars of investments.

However, Waheed said the pledge this time was possible to honor because “of the agreement the government has with the Royal Dutch Shell for the storage of liquefied and natural gas in the country.”

The government has signed a contract with the international oil major for the installation of modern facilities in the southern city of Basra to treat and store liquefied gas.

Most of the new power stations Iraq is constructing and wants to build are gas-driven.

Fuel shortages are reported to be one of the major causes of power outages which may last up to 20 hours a day in major cities.

To reach the new power output target, Waheed said, the government should invest $3-4 billion every year

I wonder how realistic their planning is. that's a huge target for any developed country.. let alone Iraq

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

27GW in 4 years?

Now they are up to 9GW (with a gargantuan effort). so they manage to add about 1GW per annum so far over the past 4 years.

but in the next 4 years. they will be adding 5GW per year????

since this came from azzaman (a saudi funded anti-government paper), I think it could just be misinformation to bad mouth the government (80% of azzaman is just that).

New power plant in Iraq costs up to $2 billion
French firm to build a power plant in Iraq


BAGHDAD (AFP)

French energy infrastructure firm Alstom on Wednesday signed a memorandum of understanding with Iraq to build a power plant in southern Iraq, which is suffering a severe electricity shortfall.

It is also set to renovate an existing power plant in the holy Shiite city of Najaf that it built 35 years ago, the French ambassador and the company said.

"Patrick Kron, chief executive officer of Alstom, today (Wednesday) signed a memorandum of understanding with the minister of oil and electricity Hussein al-Shahristani ... for the development and modernisation of Iraq’s electricity infrastructure," Alstom said.


The company has agreed to build a 1,200-megawatt power station between Najaf and the southern port city of Basra, and to rehabilitate a 180-megawatt plant in Najaf that it built in 1975.

The agreement also provides for training of Iraqi engineers and technicians.

A source with knowledge of the agreement said the construction of the new plant is likely to cost between 1.5 and two billion dollars (1.15 billion and 1.54 billion euros).

"We hope to build up the electricity sector in Iraq which has been badly damaged in recent years and meet the country's growing electricity needs," Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who attended the signing, said in a statement.

The statement said the company would begin talks with national and local officials in the coming weeks "for the practical implementation of these projects."

Iraq's daily power generation averages 8,000 megawatts, while demand in temperatures that have hit 54 degrees Celsius (130 degrees Fahrenheit) is typically more than 14,000 megawatts, forcing the use of unpopular rationing.

Only those with access to their own generators and fuel have been able to refrigerate foodstuffs or air-condition their homes around the clock.

Oppressive summer heat has triggered protests in several cities across the country, including in Basra.

Maliki has warned that two more years of shortages lie ahead as there is no quick fix to the problem, which worsened dramatically in the wake of the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

OIL RICH IRAQ WILLING TO IMPORT GAS FROM IRAN
Quote:
BAGHDAD, Aug 29 (NNN-FNA) -- Iraqi Oil Minister Hussain al-Shahristani welcomed transit of Iranian gas to the Mediterranean Sea through a pipeline crossing his country, and meantime, said that Iraq wants to import part of the gas supplies to feed its power plants.

Shahristani confirmed that Iraq and Iran have agreed "in principle" to build a pipeline to transport gas from Iran through Iraq to the Syrian coasts on the Mediterranean Sea.

Tehran last week called on its partners in Baghdad and Damascus to come to Iran to discuss gas exports to the Mediterranean.

The Iraqi oil minister told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty earlier that his country welcomes the agreement because the transit fees to be levied on the pipeline would provide Baghdad with a good source of revenue.

The pipeline could carry around 3.8 billion cubic feet of gas per day through Iraq. Iranian officials said as much as 3.8 million cubic feet of gas per day could be used by Iraq to power electrical plants with gas, something Shahristani said was a key component of the deal.

Iraq's Oil Ministry discussed the project two weeks ago with a Tehran delegation headed by Iranian Deputy Oil Minister Javad Oji.

The agreement came despite the West's growing pressures and sanctions against Iran's energy sectors.

After the UN Security Council ratified a sanctions resolution against Iran on June 9, the United States and the European Union started approving their own unilateral sanctions against the Islamic Republic over its nuclear program, mostly targeting the country's energy and banking sectors.

Tehran has always dismissed West's pressures, and stressed that sanctions and embargos merely consolidate Iranians' national resolve to continue the path of progress.

Wintercroft Capital, a Russia-Swiss company, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the local administration al-Amara, the capital of the Iraqi Missan province, to supply two power plants with the combined capacity of 1150MW, reports the Aswat Al-Iraq news agency, citing a local official.

"The Missan local government agreed today with Russia's Wintercroft Capital to build two a steam-operated power station with a capacity of 650 megawatt and another gas-operated plant with a capacity of 500 megawatt," Amer Nasrallah, the Missan provincial council's energy committee chairman, told Aswat al-Iraq on Saturday.

"The two power plants, to be carried out by means of deferred payment at a period of 8-10 years, would solve many of the electricity-related problems in the province and with even a surplus of more than 650 megawatt," added Nasrallah.

Representatives of Wintercroft Capital signed the MoU on Wednesday, reports Al-Irag.




hahahaha. I will cross link this to the "scam threads" I could find nothing called "wintercroft" on the internet or swiss companies register... so the amara' local government signed a contract with these guys (whoever they may be), and there's a big hullabaloo about it plastered all over the news.

Absolutely shocking. Some Iraqi government MONKEYS should read this forum to see what complete and utter morons they really are.

Iraqia TV

Iraq has signed a contract with a turkish consortium to build 3 power stations in north, central and southern Iraq with an output of 2500MW.

Karbala 1250MW (Khairat area, south of hindiya)
Nainawa 750MW (qaiyara, south of mosul)
Baghdad 500MW (al quds, north of baghdad)

Anecdote:
When I was working in Karbala (khairat was where our water intake position / water treatment plant is located), the "power station" project for the 1200MW "thermal plant" had to be shelved because there was not enough water in the euphrates near Hindiya to provide water. Now at that point, we created the water intake position for the karbala oil refinery (1200m3/hour), and we had to redesign the refinery to use less water. Similarly there was a large water treatment plant being built to supply potable water for Hindiya and its villages... and now they've resurected this power station... I can only hope it will be a gas turbine!!!

Three Turkish companies win contracts worth $900 mln

* For power plants in Baghdad, Kerbala and Nineveh

* To boost Iraq's power capacity by 2,500 MW

By Aseel Kami

BAGHDAD, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Iraq's Electricity Ministry said on Sunday it has awarded more than $900 million in contracts to three Turkish companies to install 20 gas turbines that will boost Iraq's power generating capacity by 2,500 megawatts.

The turbines, which were purchased previously from General Electric (GE.N: Quote), provide 125 MW each. They were part of a deal Iraq signed in 2008 with GE for 56 gas turbines and with Siemens (SIEGn.DE: Quote) for 16 gas turbines.

"The signing of the contracts will take place this week," the ministry said in a statement.

Calik Enerji won a $445.5 million contract to build a plant and install 10 turbines in Kerbala province in southern Iraq, the ministry said.

Turkish construction firm Enka Insaat won a $267.5 million deal to build a power plant and install six turbines in Nineveh province in northern Iraq.

A Turkish company called Eastern Lights will install four turbines in an existing plant in Baghdad under a contract worth $204.8 million, the ministry said.

Seven years after the U.S.-led invasion Iraq's national grid still only supplies a few hours of power each day.

An official said the turbines should be installed within 15 to 24 months. (Reporting by Aseel Kami; Editing by Jim Loney, Greg Mahlich)
so, thankfully they are for GAS TURBINES. which means that someone still has a brain.
Secondly the above contracts are excluding the cost of the turbines themselves, which iraq had bought directly from GE and Siemens. This is once again a surprisingly smart decision both in monetary terms (cheaper to buy turbines in bulk, than supplied singly by each constructor) as well as long term maintenance (unified maintenance / spares and technician expertise).

Finally, at least in Al Quds (baghdad) and khairat (karbala) there's already gas lines / flared gas available. Similarly in Qayara there's a small field where flared gas can be used as fuel!

on a negative note, however, power stations will not solve Iraq's electricity crisis... metering will, but are the politicians brave enough to tell the people they have to pay $200-$400 a month for power if they use several air conditioners?

they pay pennies compared to the real cost. Which is the reason why after 2003 people went out and bought MILLIONS of large air conditioners (the most inefficient variety with large compressors)... before 2003 the majority did not have air conditioners.

of course the power grid had no way of coping with that... so every time teh power was turned on for one district. Everyoen in that district switched on all their air conditioners at once. This creates a massive surge, meaning that instead of allocating "100MW" to the area, they had to allocate "300MW" so as not to be overloaded. The only way to give 300MW is by switching off more districts... and when you do that, you can only give electricity for 1/3rd of the time to each district.

Of course I remember even in 2005 they used to run advertisements informing the population not to switch on all their new airconditioners at once. but to no avail.

since they can buy an air con unit for $250, the "electricity" requirement for this runs to about $70-$100 per month, in Iraq they don't pay that "$70-$100" part, therefore they are under the impression that the cost of air conditioning is what you paid for the device.

The fact that most of them can't afford to run the airconditioner on the private (district) generator, should in theory give them a clue as to the true cost of airconditioning, but alas, no, they are under the impression that government power is magically created by fairies and should be free...

The electricity problem is the exact mirror of the petrol problems of 2003-2006. There was always queues, shortages, black market, smuggling of subsidised petrol to neighbouring countries... until they came and increased the price to "international" level. and voila, magically no more petrol problems AT ALL.

they could make sure that there was 100% uncut electricity supply TOMORROW, but they won't, because ironically, the people who rioted due to the lack of electricity hours, will riot if you give them 100% electricity supply.

that's really frustrating, you see citizens complaining all the time about lack of electricity, if people were willing to pay this wouldn't be happening like you said...but i must admit that the government must provide proper electrical infrastructure, people over there say the streets are a mess! powerlines everywhere, generators galore etc...

once again. all of the messy cabling, street generators etc... are all the fault of the populace and a vain, desperate attempt to avoid real metered electricity pricing.

Thing is you tell them "metered electricity" will give you 100% power, they will reply, great why won't the government do it then? those incompetents! Then you tell them, their bill will go up to $400/month if they continue using their air conditioners... and the tune changes, and they no longer want metered power, and say "our houses will get too hot" without that much air conditioning... which is true, but then, that takes us to the real problem... the design, insulation of all the houses, which are horrendously inefficient.

And thus, the root of the electricity problem in Iraq is lack of cavity wall insulation, reflectors and double glazed air tight windows, and not the electricity ministry, oil ministry or the generator man.

Iraq to offer power plant deals to boost electricity

November 24, 2010
Winners would operate turbines, sell power to govt.
Reuters
print | email | discuss
Iraq will soon ask for bids on projects to install and run 22 gas turbines that could boost its power generating capacity by 30 percent in the next few years, an Electricity Ministry official said on Tuesday.

The ministry plans to ask companies to build plants in four provinces, install and operate turbines it has already purchased from General Electric and sell the power back to the government.

Power-starved Iraq, trying to rebuild after years of war and economic sanctions, hopes to triple its electricity capacity to 27,000 megawatts from the current 9,000 MW in four years.

Laith al-Mamury, the head of investments and contracts at the Electricity Ministry, said the deal will allow the companies to buy the turbines on a delayed payment plan.

“I believe on November 30 it will be offered to the companies,” Mamury told Reuters in an interview.

“We have the units. The investor will come to finish the rest of the equipment and operate the plant for 20 to 25 years,” he said.

The 22 gas turbines, valued at 30 million euros ($40.25 million) each, would be installed in Diwaniya, Muthanna, Maysan and Basra provinces, Mamury said.

The turbines would produce 125 MW each, or 2,750 MW in total, more than 10 percent of Iraq’s ultimate goal of 27,000 MW. They were among 72 turbines Iraq purchased in 2008 from GE and Siemens in deals worth more than $5 billion.

So far six from Siemens and 20 from GE have arrived in Iraq.

Invitations to bid would be extended to 33 firms that attended an investment conference in Iraq in July, including U.S.-based Parsons Brinckerhoff, Egypt’s Orascom Construction and Turkey’s Calik Enerji, he said.

“These 33 companies are technically and financially qualified and they are interested in participating,” he said.

STABLE ELECTRICITY

More than seven years after the U.S.-led invasion, Iraq’s national grid still only supplies a few hours of power each day. Intermittent electricity is one of the public’s top complaints.

Iraq is hoping a multibillion-dollar contract with Royal Dutch Shell and Japan’s Mitsubishi to capture gas being flared in southern oilfields will help boost generating capacity. Iraq flares 1 billion cubic feet of gas every day at its oilfields.

Mamury said Iraq’s power shortage could be resolved if the government allocated $40 billion to the electricity ministry over the five years.

“Yes, this figure is true, $8 billion annually for five years in which we would install the gas and the steam stations and rehabilitate plants installed years ago … in this case the situation would be stable,” he said.

But Mamury said Iraq’s preliminary budget for 2011 allocated $4.508 billion to the electricity ministry.

The ministry had planned to sign a contract with Siemens to install its 16 turbines in five locations but the current budget allocation would not allow the signing to take place, he said.

GE Fuel Oil Treatment Selected for Iraqi Power Plant

GE Fuel Oil Treatment Selected for Iraqi Power Plant

GE (NYSE: GE) has signed a contract with Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity to supply an advanced fuel oil treatment technology, FuelSolv, to help enhance the reliability and productivity of the Al-Quds power plant on the outskirts of Baghdad.

“The Al-Quds power station provides much-needed electricity for Iraq and GE’s innovative gas turbine technology and fuel oil performance solution can help keep the Al-Quds power plant running at peak performance and efficiency throughout the year,” said Joseph Anis, GE Energy’s president for the Middle East.

“This agreement is further testament to GE’s ongoing commitment to support Iraq in boosting its power generation capacity and infrastructure growth so as to supply reliable electricity for Iraq’s people.”

GE is supplying 2,000 tons of FuelSolv, a proprietary fuel oil treatment product that can be added to a variety of power plant fuels, including heavy oil, to protect and improve the performance of power generation equipment.

This contract is the largest fuel oil treatment contract GE has signed in the Middle East and marks GE’s second fuel treatment order in Iraq, following a contract signed last year for the supply of 500 tons of FuelSolv to the Baghdad South power plant. FuelSolv was developed by the water and process technologies business unit of GE Power & Water.

The fuel additive is designed to facilitate safe, continuous operation of the GE heavy-duty gas turbines at the Al-Quds plant. When running at full operation with its six GE Frame 9E heavy-duty gas turbines, the Al-Quds plant generates 800 megawatts for the Iraq electricity grid.

GE has a long history of supporting Iraqi infrastructure needs in power generation, oil and gas, water processing, aviation and healthcare and more than 120 GE power turbines are installed in the country today.

GE has been active in the Middle East since the 1930s and has management and project management offices as well as local repair and service facilities to serve customers throughout the region.
