New power plant to sig­nif­i­cantly boost pro­duc­tion

Kur­dis­tan and Czech Repub­lic to build a power sta­tion in Khor­mala

The Kurdish Globe - - NATIONAL -

Czech Repub­lic’s Ex­port Bank is in ne­go­ti­a­tions with a lo­cal Kur­dish en­ergy com­pany about es­tab­lish­ing a power sta­tion in the Khor­mala area in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

The pro­jected ca­pac­ity of the power plant is 1,000 megawatts.

The idea of the project was dis­cussed dur­ing a meet­ing of the Elec­tric­ity Min­is­ter of Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Government (KRG) Yassin Sheikh Abubakir with the Deputy Min­is­ter of Fi­nance of the Czech Repub­lic Jan Gre­gor, the coun­try’s am­bas­sador to Iraq Alexan­der Langer, Di­rec­tor of the Czech Bank and a del­e­ga­tion from the Kar Group.

In ad­di­tion to this project, the Czech del­e­ga­tion re­it­er­ated their will­ing­ness to do par­tic­i­pate more in other projects in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

If this project is com­pleted, it would sig­nif­i­cantly add up to the power pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, which is striv­ing to meet the elec­tric­ity de­mand of the re­gion 100% and pro­duce even more power to be sold to other parts of Iraq.

Kur­dis­tan cur­rently gen­er­ates 2,800 megawatts of elec­tric­ity and the KRG Elec­tric­ity Min­istry is plan­ning to boost pro­duc­tion to reach 6,000 megawatts by the year 2016.
