In another step towards supporting the rebuilding of Iraq’s power infrastructure, Siemens will upgrade one of the country’s largest gas-fired power plants. Under a new contract, Siemens will add 650 megawatts (MW) to Shatt Al Basra Gas Power Plant, which currently has a power generation capacity of 1,250 MW and consists of non-Siemens turbines operating in simple-cycle mode. Siemens will supply five of its highly-efficient steam turbines, ensuring the additional power supply comes at no extra fuel requirement. With this upgrade, the facility will be converted to operating in combined cycle mode and its overall efficiency will increase to more than 50 percent. Once the works are completed, the power plant will supply around one million Iraqis with reliable and clean electricity.
