Siemens Energy to rebuild West Mosul’s super-grid station
Iraq, Baghdad: Siemens Energy and the Ministry of Electricity of the Republic of Iraq signed a contract to construct West Mosul 400 kV super grid station.
The station will provide reliable and efficient power supply to around 700,000 Iraqi citizens in northern Iraq, particularly the Nineveh province.
The construction of the Mosul station, which was destroyed in 2014, will help ensure stability in the transmission of power supply to the covered areas, coupled with a reduction in power losses
“Strengthening the national grid and scaling up its stability is a focal priority for us as demand for power in Iraq increases due to a growing population and to support industries and development projects in the country,” said Khalid Ghazay Attia, Director General, Electricity Transmission Company, Northern Region, Iraq. “The new Mosul station aims to bring predictable power to support the reconstruction and rebuilding of the Nineveh Governorate, recovering now from years of war. We’re already working on comprehensive grid projects across the country in collaboration with international partners, like Siemens Energy, to deploy the most reliable and advanced technologies.”
The project will be financed by the German state-owned development bank KfW.
For the West Mosul project, Siemens Energy’s scope of work includes the design, equipment manufacturing, construction, site delivery, erection, testing and commissioning for the turnkey 400/132/11 kV substation project together with the supply of 13 auto transformers.
