Iraq electric power equipment supply contract worth $200M signed by GE

18 February 2010 - GE announced the signing of contracts totaling approximately US$200 million to supply power generation equipment and services for two independent power projects in the Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq.

Located in the Dohuk and Sulaimaniyah provinces of Kurdistan, both projects are being developed by Mass Global Investment Company. When the new projects are completed, it is expected that the total electricity capacity of Mass Global-developed power plants in the Kurdistan region will reach 1,750 MW.

GE will supply four Frame 9E gas turbine-generator units for the MW simple-cycle power plant in Dohuk; and two Frame 9E gas turbine-generator units to add 250 MW of capacity to the plant in Sulaimaniyah, for a total generating capacity of 750 Mw. The two plants are scheduled to enter commercial service in the second half of 2010.

The latest contracts with Mass Global follow an announcement in 2008 that GE will supply the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity with power generation equipment for projects throughout Iraq that will help to add approximately 7,600 MW of electricity.
