Baghdad - INA
The Ministry of Electricity issued a clarification on the Shatt al-Basra and Rumaila stations for the production of electric power, noting that the proposal to sell the Rumaila and Shatt al-Arab stations is under study.
A ministry statement received by the Iraqi News Agency (INA) stated that "there is some confusion about the issue of selling the Shatt al-Basra and Rumaila stations for the production and privatization of electric power, and therefore the ministry would like to clarify some matters in this regard."
The statement pointed out that "the subject at hand in the conversation is nothing more than a proposal submitted by an investment company that deals with the Ministry of Electricity, and that this proposal is under study, as are other proposals to find solutions necessary to provide electric power to citizens." Production for power generation is the generation in the so-called simple cycle, which is in which energy is generated as a result of the combustion of gas or fuel and its derivatives, and thus the work of the generating units to generate electricity, and the generation in the so-called (combined cycle), which is to exploit the hot air resulting from the combustion of fuel and exhaust, which is heated (540) Celsius degree to operate the steam boilers and rotate the generation turbines, resulting in energy with half the power of the station operating with basic fuel, i.e. 50%.
