Iraq Electricity Master Plan


Client: Iraq Transition Assistance Office, U.S. Department of State

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff Role: Consultant

Iraq Electricity Master Plan
Parsons Brinckerhoff began work in Iraq in 2004 in support of the reconstruction programme to rebuild and expand the electrical network. The Iraq electricity masterplan project commenced in October 2009 to develop a long-term road map and least-cost electricity plan based on economic modeling and decision-making principles. It considered both the short term (next three to four years) and the long-term (up to 2030) and took over a year of intensive work to complete.

Iraq has an abundance of gas, both associated gas (from oil production) and dome gas (from gas fields). Therefore the master plan report recommended a move away from heavy fuel oil and crude oil for domestic generation to gas.

The master plan also addressed how the transmission system needed to be expanded in the next five years to accommodate the Mega Deal Power Plants (80 gas turbines equalling 10,000 MW bought by the Ministry to build new power plants), an additional 10 GW being added to a network which currently only supplies 6,000 MW and is only capable of delivering approximately 8,000 MW.

On the distribution planning side, Parsons Brinckerhoff modelled seven bulk supply points around Iraq, and ran extensive training workshops in the application of CymeDist and the development of distribution network models.

Currently being implemented, the plan will reduce unsupplied demand and its devastating effect on people and the economy. It has provided a roadmap for the future, with a plan to meet demand in the short term and then expand the electrical system as the political situation improves and the economy grows.
