PM Barzani opens new electricity generation station in Sulaimani

BAZIAN, Kurdistan Region – KRG Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani opened an electricity generation station in Sulaimani province that will add a potential 400kV to the strained Kurdistan Region grid.

“We acknowledge that there is a serious issue regarding electricity,” he said at the opening on Sunday, pointing to the financial crisis and the war against ISIS, which delayed the project.

“The government will take steps in all sectors as per its capacity,” he promised, thanking people for their “patience” while the KRG worked to overcome the financial crisis.
