Kuwaiti electricity and water minister Badr al-Shuraian has said the country’s electrical power capacity is to rise to 17,500MW from the current 12,000 MW by 2014, as the Gulf state ramps up its expenditure on power projects, Reuters has reported. Kuwait plans to spend over KD6bn ($21.3bn) on power and water projects, as part of a four-year development plan that ends in 2014.
