Power grids of Iran and Iraq will be synchronized by the end of 2019 and Tehran will help reduce power loss in the neighboring country the following year, chairman of the Export Committee of Iran Electricity Industry Syndicate said.
Iraq's power loss during distribution is over 50%. “According to a bilateral contract, this volume will drop to 30% by the end of 2020,” Payam Baqeri was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
“There is also a plan to increase the efficiency of Iraqi power plants and raise power generation capacity by the end of 2021,” he added.
