In partnership with the Iraqi Minister of Electricity, GE’s Grid Solutions team has successfully energized two 132/33kv substations that will reduce bottlenecks in eastern Baghdad. The Baladiyat and Al-Ammari substations will support the transfer of energy from generating power plants such as Besmayah, the largest power plant in Iraq, into the community. This is part of GE’s commitment to supporting Iraq in building a sustainable grid.
Aymen Qasim Testing Manager on site, said “The reason I love my job is because it allows me to contribute to, and support in building, communities. I am from Baghdad and here, we have learned over the years how to cope and get through tough times. My hard work helps me to deliver hope and light to the people … my people.”
