The linking of the barge line of Umm Qasr with an electrical transformer station as been completed, in order to supplement the national grid by 125 MW.
The Executive Director of the project said that the work had been completed in spite of obstacles encountered by the engineering and technical staffs during project implementation.
Theses included absence of transport vehicles, heat and sandstorms as well as the instability of the barge. The Director said a second barge is likely to reach the port of Khor al-Zubair late next month which will link the Khor al-Zubair thermal power station.
