Mott MacDonald is engineer for first combined cycle power plant in Iraq

Mott MacDonald is owner’s engineer for the conversion of Arbeel Power Plant in Erbil, Iraq from simple cycle to combined cycle. The project, on behalf of Mass Global Investment Company (MGI), will be the first combined cycle gas fired plant in Iraq.

The existing plant consists of eight 9E gas turbines, manufactured by GE, operating in simple cycle. This project will convert the simple cycle plant to combined cycle by installing eight heat recovery steam generators, two steam turbine generators and auxiliary systems. The conversion will add 500MW to the plant’s nominal existing output of 1000MW. It will feed into Iraq’s power grid and supply additional power to the Kurdistan region as well as southern areas of the country.

Mott MacDonald is providing services including conceptual engineering, development of design criteria as well as generating the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) bid documents that are being used to solicit EPC proposals from major international contractors. Once a contractor has been appointed, Mott MacDonald will provide project management, design review and site construction services and will oversee commissioning.

Project director John Davenport said, “Mott MacDonald is delighted to be involved in this vastly important project, which will bring much needed power to Iraq. Our project team has substantial experience both designing and executing combined cycle projects and we are applying this knowledge to the development of the Arbeel Power Plant.”

The Arbeel Power Plant is expected to be commissioned towards the latter part of 2014.
