Turkish firm to build Mosul power plant
Gas-fired plant to help Iraq meet peak summer power demands
Turkish company Calik is to build and operate the new Qayyara gas power plant in Mosul city, iraq, a report by AK News has stated.
Producing up to 750 megawatts of power, the plant will cost $338 million, and is part of the government’s attempts to accelerate the completion of gas power plants, in an attempt to provide 15,000 megawatts of generating capacity in the country by 2016.
Current estimates show that demand for power this summer could hit 14,000 megawatts, with available generated capacity just 9,000.
