The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity, under Minister Ziyad Ali Fadel, has entered into a significant contract with General Electric (GE) to modernize its gas-operated power plants starting in June. This agreement, part of Iraq's broader strategy to enhance its electricity infrastructure, aims to upgrade 12 gas-operated units and boost the efficiency of 48 generating units, potentially recovering an estimated 548 megawatts of wasted energy. The first stage of this project is expected to recover 200 megawatts by next June, with further increases in electricity output to follow. Additionally, GE has committed to long-term maintenance contracts and integrating digital technologies to further enhance efficiency and production capacity. This modernization effort not only promises to stabilize Iraq's electricity supply but also signifies a substantial investment in the country's energy sector, potentially driving economic growth and providing more reliable power for Iraqi citizens.
