Suleimanya Gas Power Station 1500 MW (SGPS)- Iraq-Kurdistan Region–Suleimanya

Mass Group Holding contracted the Ministry of Electricity of Kurdistan region – Iraq, to build Suleimanya Gas Power Station to feed Suleimanya Province with a capacity of 1.500 MW on Build, Own, Operate (BOO) basis. The site works started in 2008 through four phases, to reach total production of 1,500 MW.
The Station is located in Chamchemal , west of Suleimanyay city , 60 km from the city center.
The plant operates in combined cycle system and consists of four phases. The first phase is for building the first, second, third and fourth units with a production capacity of 500 MW. The second phase is for building the fifth and sixth units with a production capacity of 250 MW, the third phase is for building the seventh and eighth units with a production capacity of 250 MW, and the fourth phase is for building the combined cycle station with a capacity of 500 MW, making the total number of production units 10 units (8 gas turbines and 2 steam turbines) with a production capacity of 125 MW per gas turbine and 250 MW per steam turbine with a total capacity of 1500 MW.
The gas turbine units are of the type (F-9E) manufactured by GE Company and operate on gas fuel mainly and on liquid fuel when needed as well, while the steam units are of type (C-7) are also from GE Company. All other equipment are from famous European companies Such as (HRSG from CMI-Belgium, Electrical equipment from ABB-German Company, ACC ENEXIO Germany, and the gas system from the Rotring - Germany).
In the combined cycle system, the high heat emitted from the exhausts coming out of the gas generating units is exploited and passed to (HRSG) boilers that heat the water to obtain high temperature and pressure steam and pass it to the steam units for the purpose of producing electrical energy by exploiting the exhaust heat, which helps reduce thermal emissions and improve the environment without using additional fuel.
The power station adopts the application of international standards for occupational health, safety and the environment that are followed globally within

The power generation stations and considers it a priority to maintain the safety of employees and equipment and pay attention to green areas and afforestation and increase their areas inside the station.
