Hyundai will raise the generating capacity of a series of power plants in Iraq, in a government-backed bid to reinforce the nation’s electricity grid by 380 megawatts of power by the end of this month.

In a report by AK News, Musab al-Mudarres, a spokesman for the Ministry of Electricity, said that the network-boosting project would increase the output of plants in Dawra, Rashid, Adhamiya, Sadr, Basra, Nasiriya, Amara, Baiji and Kirkuk.

He said: “The ministry is working in coordination with provincial councils to develop an energy programme that meets the needs of citizens during the summer season.”
