Mar 17, 2004 01:00 AM

The Iraqi Electricity Ministry has signed two contracts with international companies from Scandinavia and the United States to establish two modern power plants near Baghdad.
The Ministry said the first one is a gas plant of six units that will be finished within one year and have a capacity of 750 MW.

The second one with the Scandinavian company will be operated by heavy fuel and expected to be completed within six months with a capacity of 340 MW.
Ayham Al Samurai, Iraq's minister of electricity, announced that the ministry would build four new power plants with a total capacity of 2,114 MW. He said Iran had agreed to supply Iraq with 100 MW of electricity, 50 % of whose cost would be paid in cash and the rest would be paid in oil.

Samurai pointed out that Iraq's demand for electricity amounts to 18,000 MW, and by June 7,000 MW would be supplied under the government's efforts.
He noted the government were continuing its work in rehabilitating the existing power plants and signing contracts with other countries to build new ones.
