Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity announced on Tuesday the experimental launch of a number of electrical units in the al-Sadr gas station. According to the report from AKnews, the plant is operated by the Iranian company Snair (which Iraq Business News believes to be Sunir).
The ministry’s media spokesman, Musab al-Mudarres, told AKnews that the station will provide the Iraqi network with a total of 640 MW with two of the station’s six units operational.
The Electricity Ministry presented in December projects for the construction of four gas-powered electricity generating plants for investment within the first licensing round, in order to double its production over the coming years.
“The Ministry of Electricity is working in coordination with the Iranian company to resolve the technical obstacles that hinder the completion of the al-Sadr gas station,” Mudarres said.
The Iraqi government has announced plans to increase the country’s generative capacity to 27,000 megawatts over the next four years, requiring an investment of between $3bn and $4bn per year.

Iraq has doubled its electricity capacity over prewar levels, making dramatic headway in a critical benchmark that had plagued U.S. leaders and frustrated Iraqis since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.



Iraq’s supply of electricity is 7,900 megawatts, about double the levels before the war, according to the U.S. Embassy in Iraq.
Demand for electricity has increased 73% since 2005 to 15,300 megawatts, according to embassy statistics.
For years, Iraq’s sputtering electrical grid was a symbol of U.S. inability to rebuild Iraq in the face of growing chaos.
Iraq has increased capacity by renovating plants, buying power from outside the country and improving transmission lines. Much of the capacity was increased in the past three years, according to U.S. military statistics.
The United States has contributed $4.6 billion since 2003 to Iraq’s efforts to restore electricity.
“They generate and transmit more electricity now than they ever have in the past,” said Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, the top U.S. military spokesman in Iraq.
Even with the increase, Iraq will fall short of what is needed because demand for power is skyrocketing at an even faster clip. Iraqis have access to computers, wide-screen televisions, air conditioners and other items that were in short supply when the country was under sanctions imposed by the United Nations.
Because most consumers pay little or nothing for electricity, there is not much incentive to conserve. That will probably mean continued blackouts in Baghdad and elsewhere that will force residents to use generators and other private sources of electricity. “There’s still a significant gap between desire and capacity,” said Anthony Cordesman, an analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
That has Iraq’s government concerned as summer approaches. Temperatures regularly rise above 100 degrees in summer.
Protesters have taken to the streets as part of a wave of regional unrest sweeping across the Arab world and could do so again.
Iraq’s demonstrations focus on a variety of issues, including corruption, unemployment and cronyism, Cordesman said. A lack of services, such as clean water and electricity, helps trigger the anger, he said.
“They are listening, and they’re very concerned about how … do they meet the people’s needs,” Buchanan said of Iraq’s government.
At the height of the insurgency, militants targeted power lines and other infrastructure, but violence has dropped dramatically.
It’s not clear when Iraq’s ability to generate electricity will catch up with demand.
The International Monetary Fund forecasts Iraq’s economy will grow by 9.65% this year. Most of Iraq’s economy is based on oil, which has been increasing in price.
Iraq’s government has contracted with 14 foreign oil companies, and crude oil production has increased 26% over prewar levels to 2.7 million barrels a day.

yes but it hasnt made a difference and its not the governments fault. i mean i know the'res corruption in iraq and with a budget like 80bn, the electricity problem should have been solved by now, but the people in iraq arnt helping. electricity is dirt cheap, so when the muwalida is on, you get people using the bare necessities, fridge, a few lights, tv etc.., but as soon as the wataniya comes on, all the aircons are on, all the lights go on, several satellites and tvs, ALL at once, even the ones they dont need, how's the government supposed to fix that. just like the government is at fault for corruption, the population is also at fault for the electricity issue.

the solution to this problem was already highlighted and explained at the beginning of this thread. But the government is unwilling to tell people the truth. Because the people can't handle the truth.

Iraq fires up new power plant in Baghdad

(Reuters) - Iraq's Ministry of Electricity and Iranian power development firm Sunir inaugurated a $150 million, 320-megawatt power plant in Baghdad on Sunday that should boost Iraq's feeble electricity supply.

The plant, constructed on 25 acres in the Sadr City slum in northeastern Baghdad, has two 160-MW turbines, one of which was connected to the national grid on Sunday. The other was scheduled to be hooked up next month.

"No power station of this size has been installed in Baghdad in years," electricity ministry spokesman Musab al-Mudarres said.

Intermittent power is one of Iraqis' main complaints. Eight years after the fall of dictator Saddam Hussein, the grid still only supplies a few hours of power a day. Protesters at recent demonstrations frequently complained about the power supply.

Iraq needs more than 15,000 megawatts to meet peak summer demand. Its supply this summer is projected to be just 7,000 megawatts, the electricity minister said last month.

Sunir Vice President Amir Anvari said the company plans to install two more gas units in a second phase of the plant and should sign a contract for the project in about a month.

The new turbines would bring total capacity of the plant to 640 MW.

The turbines can be run on natural gas or gasoil. Each unit needs 1 million liters of gasoil a day, which requires 80 fuel tanker trucks to travel to the site every day.

"There is a real problem in transferring fuel to this plant ... with these unpaved roads, these traffic jams and these (security) checkpoints," said Ghalib al-Zamili, the head of the energy committee of Baghdad's provincial council.

Sunir is in negotiations with the ministry to install a natural gas pipeline between Iran and Iraq to feed the Sadr City power station and another in northern Baghdad, Anvari said.

Iraq signs $4 billion deals to boost power supply

(Reuters) - Iraq said on Thursday it had signed two deals worth almost $4 billion to build emergency power stations across the country to help double electricity supply to 16 hours a day by next summer.

Eight years since the fall of dictator Saddam Hussein, Iraqis still only have power for a few hours a day, one of the main sources of public discontent toward the authorities who have failed to tackle the problem despite windfall oil revenues.

Iraq needs more than 15,000 megawatts to meet peak summer demand. Its supply this summer is projected to be just 7,000 megawatts, enough to supply just eight hours of power a day, the electricity minister said last month.

Laith al-Mamury, head of investments and contracts at the electricity ministry, said Iraq had now signed a $3.2 billion deal with a South Korean company to build 25 power stations with a total capacity of 2,500 MW in different parts of Iraq.

He said the ministry had also signed a $762 million contract with Jordanian company Elite to build several power stations with a total capacity of 600 MW.

The ministry will also sign two more contracts in the next few days to build power stations with a total capacity of 1,900 MW, Mamury said.

The ministry of electricity's emergency plan calls for 50 mini-power stations -- producing about 100 MW each -- around the country to help provide an interim solution while long-term power projects get underway.

Electricity Minister Raad Shallal said last month the total cost of the emergency plan would be around $6 billion.

The emergency generators will allow the country's grid to supply 16 hours a day of power in the summer of 2012.

The South Korean company will buy the equipment for the plants from other South Korean companies including LS Industrial Systems and Hyosung Corp, Mamury said.

Turkey to provide Iraq with electricity

Saturday, April 16, 2011 10:32 GMT
Iraq Ministry of Electricity announced on Thursday that it inked an agreement with Turkey to provide Iraq with electricity during summer 2011 and to increase the share of Euphrates river water arriving to Iraq. The ministry said that in 2012 Iraq will connect its electricity grid with that of turkey.
“Iraq Ministry of Electricity agreed with Turkey that the latter shall provide Iraq with 200 Megawatts of electricity the current summer thru Al Mosul distribution line after rehabilitating the same during the next two months,” Iraq Minister of Electricity said in a press conference held at the Ministry and attended by Alsumarianews. “Turkey also agreed to provide Iraq with an additional 100 megawatts thru Turkey-Syria-Iraq power-line given that works in preparing this line end”, he added.
“The ministry also agreed with Turkey on increasing the quantity of water in Euphrates in order for Iraq to operate a new developed power station with a productivity capacity of 400 megawatt”, the minister uttered. “Iraq is waiting to negotiate with Syria so as it allows this increase to reach Iraq”, he added.
“Iraq will connect its electricity system with that of Turkey officially as of November 2012 after Turkey finishes works in its distribution lines”, Shalal said. “Iraq finished all its logistic and technical preparations in this regard”, he stressed.
The regional electricity system is part of the Arab Electricity Grids Interconnection Projects and it is known by Eight Country Interconnection Project, it includes: Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Libya and Iraq. This project is hoped to be implemented in the upcoming period.
Iraq imports 400 megawatts thru three electricity lines: Karmanshah – Diyala and Serbil – Zuhab – Khankin.

BAGHDAD, April 25 (Reuters) - Iraq's electricity ministry signed a $1 billion deal with China's Shanghai Electric (2727.HK: Quote) on Monday to nearly double the size of a power plant south of Baghdad.

The plant in the town of Zubaidiya initially was slated to have four 330 megawatt generators for a total capacity of 1,320 MW but the new deal would see two additional 610 MW units installed to expand capacity to 2,540 megawatts, officials said.

Shanghai started work last May on Phase 1 of the plant, which was valued at $924 million.

"This is a huge leap in the contracts of the electricity ministry to enlarge a thermal plant by 1,200 MW," Electricity Minister Raad Shallal said at the signing ceremony. "Thermal power plants are the backbone of the electricity system. The long term plan of the ministry is the thermal plants."

Intermittent electricity is one of Iraqis' chief complaints. More than eight years after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein, the national grid supplies only a few hours of power each day. (Reporting by Aseel Kami; writing by Jim Loney; Editing by Hans Peters)

KHAIRAT Iraq, May 8 (Reuters) - Iraqi energy officials on Sunday marked the start of work on a 1,250 megawatt power plant with Turkey's Calik Enerji as the power-starved country seeks to boost its electricity output.

The Turkish company, which won the $445.5 million contract in October, is expected to finish the project in April 2013, Sabeeh Qadu, general manager for gas projects in Iraq's Electricity Ministry told Reuters.

The plant consists of 10 gas turbines, each producing 125 MW, or 1,250 MW in total. The turbines are among 56 gas turbines the ministry purchased from General Electric (GE.N: Quote) in 2008, Qadu added.

"Today we are celebrating by putting in the foundation of building one of the biggest power generation plants in Iraq," Hussain al-Shahristani, the deputy prime minister for energy, told reporters at the site where the plant will be built in Khairat, 30 km southeast of Kerbala.

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

A Turkish official said Calik Enerji had so far completed a soil survey at the site, which currently employs 100 people, including engineers and technicians. Around 60 of the 100 employees are Turkish.

Calik also won a $388.5 million contract last month to build a power plant with a total capacity of 750 MW near Mosul in northern Iraq. [ID:nnLDE72S0MA] (Reporting by Aseel Kami; Editing by Serena Chaudhry and Hans Peters)

Work Starts at $450m Karbala Power Station

Iraq’s Deputy Premier for Energy, Hussein al-Shahrestani, laid the foundation stone for the new 1250 megawatt al-Khairat power station in Karbala, which will add about 20% to power production in Iraq if completed as scheduled in April 2013.

Iraqi energy officials on Sunday marked the start of work on a 1,250 megawatt power plant with Turkey’s Calik Enerji as the power-starved country seeks to boost its electricity output.

The project is being undertaken by Turkish company Calik Enerji, which won the $445.5 million contract in October. The cost is to be repaid based on a deferred payment system as agreed with the Turkish government, Zahi Samit al-Da’mi, the chairman of the Karbala Provincial Council’s power & fuel committee, told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

The plant consists of 10 gas turbines, each producing 125 MW, giving 1,250 MW in total. The turbines are among 56 gas turbines the ministry purchased from General Electric in 2008, Sabeeh Qadu, general manager for gas projects in Iraq’s Electricity Ministry, told Reuters.

“Today we are celebrating by putting in the foundation of building one of the biggest power generation plants in Iraq,” Hussain al-Shahristani, the deputy prime minister for energy, told reporters at the site where the plant will be built in Khairat, 30 km southeast of Kerbala.

A Turkish official said Calik Enerji had so far completed a soil survey at the site, which currently employs 100 people, including engineers and technicians. Around 60 of the 100 employees are Turkish.

Calik also won a $388.5 million contract in March to build a 750 KW power plant near Mosul in northern Iraq.

A subsidiary of Calik Holdings, GAP Construction, will carry out a $195 million project rehabilitating a 19-kilometer expressway between Baghdad International Airport and the city center, as well as landscaping works on a plot with a total area of 1.6 million square meters.

South Korea’s Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. started work today on a $219 million project to expand a gas-fired power station near Baghdad, an Iraqi Electricity Ministry spokesman said.

The Al-Quds station located in a suburb northeast of the capital will increase production to 1,400 megawatts from 900 megawatts after 18 months, said Qais al-Waeli, spokesman for the ministry’s gas projects.

Iraq still struggles with severe electricity shortages eight years after the U.S.-led invasion that ousted President Saddam Hussein. The government has sought bids this year for the construction of more than 60 power plants.

elaborating on that "south korean 25x100MW plant" deal.

STX Heavy Industries Co. signed an agreement today to install 25 power plants to generate a total of 2,500 megawatts in Iraq, Iraqi Electricity Minister Raad Shallal said.

“This is a big event as the company will be establishing 25 plants in a region ranging from the southern city of Basra to the south of Baghdad,” he said in a speech during the signing, aired on the state-sponsored Iraqiya television.

The diesel-fired plants will be built within a total period of 13 months, he said during the ceremony attended by Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

The units are half of the 50 new 100-megawatt power plants planned by the Iraqi government at a cost of $6.25 billion. A group of South Korean companies won the contract for the first 25 installations on April 7.

Iraq faces electricity shortages eight years after the U.S.-led invasion that ousted President Saddam Hussein and its generation and distribution network have suffered from decades of conflict, sanctions and sabotage. The country sought bids this year to build more than 60 power plants to add more than 14,000 megawatts to the grid.

Iraq produces 7,000 megawatts and imports 1,000 megawatts while domestic demand totals about 14,000 megawatts, Shallal said last month.
