Iraqi Cabinet Approves 200 MW Solar Plant in Karbala

The Iraqi government has approved the recommendation of the Ministerial Council for Energy to build a new 200 MW solar power plant in Karbala governorate. The decision was made at the cabinet meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani.


In December 2021, the Cabinet approved the contract for the construction of two solar energy projects in Karbala (300 megawatts) and Alexandria/Iskandariya (225 megawatts).


The Ministry of Oil had previously announced the project in October, involving a consortium of companies led by the Norwegian Scatec, whose main shareholder is Equinor (formerly Statoil), and including Egypt's Orascom and Iraq's Al-Bilal.
