Kurdistan government receives wind study bids

29 October 2008
The Kurdistan Regional Government has received three bids for the contract to carry out a wind energy feasibility study in Iraq’s three Kurdish governates.

Bids were submitted on 27 October.

The study covers the governorates of Irbil, Dohuk and Suleimaniah and includes nominating suitable sites for wind energy, collecting and analysing wind data from the sites, and designing suitable wind farms for the locations.

The regional government is also planning to build three hydropower plants at Halwan, northwest of Irbil, at Delga in the Suleimanian governorate and at Gali Balinda east of Dohuk.

The deadline for bids for that feasibility study has been delayed from 20 October to 3 November.

The successful bidder will carry out surveying works for the three dam and reservoir sites, hydrological, hydraulic, geological and geotechnical studies, and a hydropower plant study (MEED 24:09:08).
