Siemens plans to expand its cooperation with Iraq by developing projects with a capacity of more than six gigawatts in the next five years.
A spokesman for Siemens Energy told Reuters that this would include, among other things, the construction of power plants as well as development in the renewable energies sector and stabilization of the electricity grid.
The spokesman added that the CEO of the company, Christian Bruch, intends to sign a memorandum of understanding regarding these plans with the Iraqi Minister of Electricity on Friday.
"Having a reliable source of energy is the basis for a stable society," Bruch told Reuters. "Supplying electricity to large parts of an entire country is therefore one of the most important tasks of our company."
He said that the company will work to ensure that this is achieved as soon as possible with its partners in Iraq.
The company said that the current roadmap is linked to the 2019 agreement, which includes projects with more than gigawatts by 2023.
It is noteworthy that Iraqi Prime Minister Muhammad Shia al-Sudani is visiting Berlin on Friday with a high-level delegation, where he is scheduled to meet with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. Ended 29 / h
