Turkey’s Lanka Wins Nineveh Power Contract

A Turkish company has been contracted to set up four new power stations in Nineveh province at an overall cost of $200 million [240 billion Iraqi dinars], a provincial energy official has announced.

Muhammed Wadallah al-Jabbouri from the Nineveh directorate of energy told AKnews that the Turkish firm Lanka has been given the task of supplying and installing the four 125 megawatt (MW) units in a bid to raise the generating capacity of the province for the summer season.

“The company will begin setting up the units this week,” Jabbouri said.

The four power generating units are in addition to a $267 million six-unit deal signed between the Nineveh energy directorate and Lanka in mid-February.
