Iraqi press sources claim that the Ministry of Electricity has ceased dealings with the German company Siemens and all its subsidiaries, due to the company not fulfilling its contracts.
The spokesperson of the Ministry of Electricity, Musab al-Mudaris, reportedly said that Minister Kareem Aftan gave the instruction during a meeting with the South Korean company Hyundai at the Rumaila gas-fired power station.
The power station contains five generators made by Siemens, according to a contract signed at the end of 2008, with a capacity of 292 megawatts each.
Just last week, we reported that Siemens Turkey won a new contract to supply equipment for Iraqi transformer stations.
