Turkey to up power exports to Iraq
Turkish energy group Karadeniz Toptan Elektrik Ticareti (Kartet) has signed a contract with the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity for an additional 1000 MW of electricity exports to Northern Iraq by the first half of 2006. Kartet started supplying electricity to Iraq in 2003 from its 44 MW plant located in Silopi on the Turkish-Iraqi border and currently supplies 200 MW.
Iraq still faces a significant shortfall in power supply with around 4000 MW of usable installed capacity, against a demand of around 10 000 MW. The Ministry says that a further 3700 MW will be added soon http://pepei.pennnet.com/Articles/
