GE has provided four of its GT13E2 gas turbines to the Mansurya power plant in Diyala, Iraq.

Two of the 180MW turbines have already been synchronised to Iraq’s national grid, while work is in progress to commission the other two units.

The Mansurya plant was partially damaged during construction due to a conflict in the area, which also delayed progress. Once commissioned, the plant will be operated by GE for the first three months. It will be later operated directly by the Ministry of Electricity in Iraq.

If converted to combined cycle configuration, the plant is expected to operate at an efficiency of up to 55%.

"Our primary focus is on rebuilding and strengthening the country’s electricity infrastructure."

Official spokesperson for the Iraq Ministry of Electricity Musaab al-Mudarris said: “Our primary focus is on rebuilding and strengthening the country’s electricity infrastructure, especially in light of the surge in demand during the summer season.

“Several power plants, including Mansurya, were damaged, resulting in the need for the fast mobilisation of advanced technologies to restore them and recommence operations.
