Iraq Adds 250MW to National Grid

By John Lee.

A spokesperson for Iraq’s Electricity Ministry, Musaib al-Mudarisi, says the newly constructed power plant in Babel is now fully operational, adding 250 megawatts of power to the national grid.

The plant comprises two generating units, each with 125 megawatts, and has already been linked to the national grid.

The plant was inaugurated by Prime Minister Noori al-Maliki who in his opening remarks noted that “Iraq … will have surplus power.” The ministry has promised to put an end to power cuts by the end of 2013 at the latest.
