Ministry bolsters power grid with 375MW boost from new units

The introduction of two production units at the Al-Zour South and Shuaiba North stations has alleviated the state of alert the ministry has faced since the start of the summer season.

  • The Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy is reviewing current consumption statistics across various sectors to help rationalize consumption in the coming years and reduce electrical load.

The introduction of two production units at the Al-Zour South and Shuaiba North stations, with a combined capacity of 375 megawatts, has alleviated the state of alert the Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy has faced since the start of the summer season. These units successfully secured the country’s electrical energy needs without resorting to programmed cuts, despite high loads reaching 16,460 MW, the Al Rai newspaper reported.

Informed sources in the ministry told Al-Rai newspaper that “the introduction of the two production units, in addition to the Gulf support received by the national network, has enhanced the production capacity of the generating stations,” adding that they expect “the ministry will get through the rest of the summer season without resorting to programmed shutdowns, especially if the rest of the units are introduced.” The network will undergo maintenance as soon as possible, and consumers are expected to cooperate in conservation efforts.

Sources indicated that the ministry is making efforts to complete the maintenance work on these units as quickly as possible to meet the increasing demand for energy during the current summer months due to high temperatures. They also noted that the units will be brought into service sequentially.

Simultaneously, the Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy is reviewing current consumption statistics across various sectors to help rationalize consumption in the coming years and reduce electrical load until new production projects are introduced to enhance the power stations’ production capacity.
