HHI Completes Delivery of Iraqi Diesel Power Plants
Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (HHI) completed delivery of 144 Diesel Power Plant (DPP) units to Iraq. The DPPs are worth US$380 million. The DPPs, ordered by the Iraqi government in June last year, have a total capacity of 360MW and can provide electricity to 120,000 households. HHI started to supply the DPPs from February and delivered the last DPP on June 15.
The DPP unit is a small sized power plant which can be installed quickly and can use both light oil and heavy oil as fuel. It is popular in challenging environments, areas that have poor electrical infrastructure and war-torn countries because it is easy to install and convenient to use.
HHI has exported more than a thousand Packaged Diesel Power facilities to 23 countries throughout South Asia, the Middle East, South America, Europe, and Africa. The company has so far been contracted to supply a total of 180 DPPs worth US$420 million to Iraq. The ‘HiMSEN’ Engine, which is used in all Packaged Diesel Power facilities, was developed by HHI.
The DPPs will be installed in 12 regions, including Baghdad, and supply electricity to households and industry.
