Baghdad: Shatha Al-Janabi
The Ministry of Electricity has prepared to improve summer equipment by raising production capacity to 25,000 megawatts and maintaining strategic transmission lines that have been idle since 2013, in addition to installing transformers and mobile stations to balance the loads on the system.
The government intends to sign a new contract with Iran to import gas used to operate power stations, as last summer witnessed major crises in the provision of electricity, due to the Iranian side's failure to export the contracted quantities of gas.
The official spokesman for the Ministry of Electricity, Ahmed Musa Al-Abadi, said: "The ministry has formed an operations room under the guidance of the Prime Minister, to undertake field tours to determine the readiness of stations, transmission lines and the distribution sector during the summer season."
He pointed out that "the preparation of an emergency plan for the next summer season, with the continuation of periodic maintenance work for production stations, including obstetric units that have been suspended for a long time."
Al-Abadi pointed out that "the production capacity has now reached the threshold of 21,000 megawatts, and it is hoped that it will rise during the summer to 25,000 megawatts after introducing additional generating units, in an effort to increase processing hours."
