Plans Changed for Four New Power Stations

The Iraqi government energy committee decided to cancel plans for the construction of four power plants to boost power-generation capacity by 2,750 megawatts, according to Bloomberg.

The bids were for a 1,250-megawatt plant near Basra, and three 500-megawatt plants in the cities of Samawa, Diwaniya and Amara.

“These proved to be non-profitable for the Electricity Ministry, as the tenders were for building and operating the stations,” Electricity Ministry spokesman Masaab Serri said.

“We are studying the possibility of issuing new tenders just for their construction.”
