“The Iraq Infrastructure Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, infrastructure associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Iraq’s infrastructure industry.
Iraqâ€™s infrastructure sector continues to be the main focus of reconstruction efforts in the country. While the electricity sector continues to take centre stage, progress is being made in the transport sector, especially in the railways sector, where tenders are under way for new projects.
In May 2010, the government announced a new target for the electricity sector, to generate 27,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity by 2013. With current nameplate capacity standing at around 15,000MW, this includes almost doubling capacity in three years.
