Alstom Grid in $41m Iraq substation deal

Alstom Grid has won a contract worth $41 million to supply five substations in Iraq.

The deal with KAR Construction & Engineering is for four 132/33/11 kV air-insulated switchgear substations and one 132/33/11 kV gas-insulated switchgear substation, which are intended to enable the expansion of the transmission and distribution networks in the city of Dohuk and surrounding suburbs.

The package – which is Alstom’s first substation project in Iraq since 2002 – also includes extensions and modifications of three existing area substations.

Alstom Grid President Grégoire Poux-Guillaume said the contracts represented “an important milestone for Alstom Grid” and were “critical to the infrastructure of the region’s electricity network”.

Kar Construction & Engineering Company is part of Kar Group, a privately owned Iraqi company that builds turnkey projects, private power plants and oil refineries.
