Ministry of Electricity of Iraq

Ministry of Electricity of Iraq is responsible for both the policymaking and electricity supply throughout the country.

Khor Al Zubair, Republic of Iraq

Completion Date:
March 2015

DCPro Engineering

Contract Type:
Design, Supply, Testing and Commissioning of the instrumentation and control system for two TIAC systems each of which serving one Gas Turbines.

Plant Capacity:
50 megawatt (MW)

Cooling Capacity:
2×5,000 TR


Project Scope:
The Khor Al Zubair project is the largest U.S. Government-funded power-plant project undertaken in Iraq. Located in a remote region of southern Iraq, the Khor Al Zubair gas-turbine power plant is designed to supply electricity for hundreds of thousands of people.

TIAC system is installed to enhance power generation capacity and efficiency of combustion/gas turbines during hot weather conditions by maintaining the inlet air temperature at ISO condition and the power output at nominal value.

Turbine Inlet Air Chilling System prevents loss of power generation capacity when the ambient temperatures are above ISO condition of 15°C by maintaining the Inlet Air Temperature at ISO condition.

Our Solution:
Redundant Allen-Bradley ControlLogix PLC System; Redundant Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk View Site Edition SCADA System, and Siemens/E+H Instrumentation system.
