Siemens Energy to build Northern Iraq’s largest 400kV substation

by May 4, 2021

Siemens Energy and the Ministry of Electricity of the Republic of Iraq signed a contract to construct Iraq’s West Mosul 400 kV super grid station, which will provide reliable and efficient power supply to around 700,000 Iraqi citizens in northern Iraq, particularly the Nineveh province. The newly built substation will connect to 30 substations at 132kV.
Siemens Energy’s scope of work includes the design, equipment manufacturing, construction, site delivery, erection, testing and commissioning for the turnkey 400/132/11kV substation project together with the supply of 13 auto transformers. The project will be financed by the German state-owned development bank KfW.
In addition to this project, Siemens Energy is also installing more than 14 HV substations across Iraq. All these projects are part of “The Iraq Roadmap” signed between Siemens and the Ministry of Electricity of the Republic of Iraq in 2019 which includes the addition of new and highly efficient power generation capacity, rehabilitation and upgrade of existing plants and the expansion of transmission and distribution networks.
