INTERNATIONAL. Following an agreement with the authorities of Diwaniyah in southern Iraq, the Iranian company Ego group will construct 10 electricity generating plants with a total capacity of 40 megawatts in Diwaniyah province, 120 miles south of the capital Baghdad.
 
Iran will increase its overall supply of electric power for Iraq by nearly a third, according to a recent agreement between the two neighboring countries, according to Iranian Energy Minister, Majid Namho.
 
During a recent meeting in Tehran with Iraq’s Electricity Minister, Raad Shallal Saeed al-Any, Namho said that “Iran’s power exports for Iraq, now estimated at 800 megawatts, are expected to rise to 1,250 megawatts, according to a decision taken by both countries recently,” The Voice of the Islamic Republic of Iran Radio 1 reported.
 
Namho added that “a 400-megawatt line – Karkha-Amara is nearly complete this summer, being a part of Iran’s planned electric power exports for Iraq. The Iraqi side has confirmed the necessity to construct the Khorramshahr-Abuflous line, expected to be completed by the summer of 2012, through sending a technical team and the settling of outstanding problems, in order to increase Iran’s electric power for Iraq from its present level to 1,250 megawatts.”
