MAPNA Group synchronized the fourth unit of Rumaila Combined Cycle Power Plant to the Iraqi national grid on Thursday, September 27, 2018.

MAPNA Combined Cycle Power Plants Construction and Development Company (aka MD-2), the subsidiary in charge of the project, has so far synchronized a total number of 90 units with an aggregate capacity of 13,733 megawatts inside and outside Iran.

MAPNA Group is responsible for design, procurement, transportation, installation, and commissioning of the 3000-MW power plant, located on the outskirts of Basra in southern Iraq.

The conglomerate also supervises the civil construction operation carried out by the client, Shamara Holding Group.

The first phase of the project includes construction of six gas-fueled units that run on MAP2B turbines, homegrown turbines designed and manufactured by MAPNA.

An efficiency of 34.6 percent has been set for the units, to be increased to 36 percent twelve months after receiving the provisional accreditation certificate (PAC).

Three E-type steam units will be added to these thermal units in the second phase of the project.

Upon completion, the power plant will comprise six blocks of power (BoP) each with a capacity of 500 MWs.
