Iraq signed a $72 million deal with Iranian firm Sunir [Sanir] to expand the Dibis power plant in northern Kirkuk province by 320 megawatts, according to Bloomberg.
The company will install two gas units, each with a capacity of 160 megawatts. The units were purchased from Siemens in 2008, and will be installed in just over 14 months.
Dibis currently produces 150 MW.
The deal with Sunir is the second contract awarded to the company. It has already built a $150 million gas power plant in Baghdad, consisting of two units with a total capacity of 320 MW, but the company was criticised for its execution of the project.
