The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity and GE Energy announced that they have signed an agreement for power generation equipment and services valued at nearly US$3 billion to provide much-needed electricity to support Iraq’s future economic development. Under the agreement, GE Energy is providing heavyduty frame 9E multifuel gas turbines capable of supplying 7000 MW of electricity.

The Government of Iraq plans to install the units at key sites around the country to provide needed support for the electricity grid. The agreement follows the Government of Iraq’s previous order with GE in May 2008 for eight gas turbines capable of generating 600 MW to meet short-term power requirements in Iraq. Currently, Iraq’s daily power generation output averages less than 6000 MW, while the demand is typically more than 10 000 MW.
