First Power Pylon Arrives in Basra in February

The governor of Basra, Shaltagh Abboud, discussed with the director of a Turkish manufacturer of electricity pylons the necessary procedures for the arrival of power-generating pylons in the province, according to a local official source on Thursday.

“The pylons, scheduled to start to arrive in February, would be linked to the national power grid in March,” the source told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

He added that the first pylon to be received by the province is being manufactured in Istanbul while the second one will be manufactured at Singaporean ports and will arrive in March.

“The pylons will be set up at the ports of Khour al-Zubair and Umm Qasr with the objective of adding 250 megawatt to the national power capacity,” he noted.
