Siemens Energy, one of the world’s leading energy technology companies, has signed a contract with the Iraqi authorities to rebuild a 400-kilovolt (kV) super-grid station in the country’s West Mosul region, which will provide reliable and efficient power supply to around 700,000 Iraqi citizens in northern Iraq.
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. The project will be financed by the German state-owned development bank KfW.
On completion, it will supply approximately 30 stations with voltage levels of 132 kV, thereby helping to tackle the severe shortage of power supply in the Nineveh province.
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 400/132/11kV substation project together with the supply of 13 auto transformers.
