Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi inaugurated this morning the composite gas station and the concrete bridge in Dhi Qar Governorate.

Al-Kadhimi said during his inauguration of the station: “Today we are inaugurating the composite gas station in Nasiriyah, which produces more electrical energy than its counterparts, and at the same time, preserves the environment by using the gases extracted from it that were previously wasted.”

He added: “In this stage, the station will provide 500 megawatts to the governorate and the national grid, and in the second phase of completing the station, 250 megawatts will be added by taking advantage of the gases generated from the current stage as a source of power generation instead of fuel. A month ago, we opened Al-Muthanna station, which is also a composite station, and we will soon open Samarra station, which has recently been completed.

Al-Kadhimi continued, “We have focused our efforts on shifting attention towards solar energy plants instead of gas stations, and the government is working hard to complete the electrical connection with neighboring countries,” noting: “These integrated plans will help solve the problem of accumulated and overlaid electricity once and for all in Iraq.” The dilemma requires serious and courageous solutions, and this is what the government is working on with all its might.”

After that, Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi inaugurated the concrete bridge in Dhi Qar.
