Iraq is planning to build a 750-MW solar park in the southern Al-Muthanna Governorate, the country’s preacher of electricity Adel Karim has actually said.

The federal government will certainly sustain Al-Muthanna with the large-scale solar project as well as a number of smaller sized power plant to guarantee sufficient electricity supply in the governorate, Karim claimed previously today at a conference at the office of the governor.

At the conference, Karim, guv Ahmed Manfi and the directors of the local power circulation divisions went over the scenario in the power sector in the province and also the preparations for the summer season.

Iraq just recently took measures to promote making use of solar energy as well as agreed three significant solar projects with an integrated capacity of 2.75 GW which are expected to be linked to the grid in 2025.

These consist of a 1-GW contract with UAE’s renewable energy firm Masdar, a pact with TotalEnergies SE (EPA: TTE) for a 1-GWp solar complex and also 750 MW of solar capacity to be deployed by Chinese state-owned conglomerate Power Construction Corp of China (Power China).
