Calik Enerji to Open Khairat Power Plant in July

The Turkish company Çalık Enerji will open its 250 mega watt Khairat power station at the beginning of July, the first of 20 stations Iraq hopes to build around the country, reports AKnews.

The Deputy Prime Minister for Energy, Hussein al-Shahristani, made the announcement today and told AKnews that the Ministry of Oil will provide fuel for the plant, located in Karbala, southwest of Baghdad.

About the measures taken to address the electricity crisis during the summer, Shahristani said “the ministry will install 20 stations in different parts of the country, and the capacity of each one will reach up to 250 MW.”

Iraq needs at least 14,000 MW to meet the high demand for energy but currently has less than 7,000 MW.
