A Fire In Al-Suwaira Power Station Causes A Power Outage In The City

Kut A fire in one of the transformers of Al-Suwaira substation, 132kv, in Wasit, caused a power outage in the city and its suburbs.

The energy advisor in the province, Ammar Hussam, told the correspondent of the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA) that: “A fire broke out in the number one transformer, which caused it to be out of service, indicating that the station is preparing feeders for the secondary station of Al-Zohor and the Korean station in al-Suwaira.

He added, “The civil defense teams controlled the fire and prevented it from reaching the rest of the station, explaining that the staff of the Energy Transmission Directorate began working to repair the damaged transformer and return it to service.”
