The Iraq Representative Office is established in 2014, responsible for the management of marketing and performance supervision within the country of Iraq. At present, POWERCHINA Iraq Branch and POWERCHINA Kurd Branch have been established, with their registered offices in Baghdad and Erbil. Between the two branches, POWERCHINA Iraq Branch is performed as the main company.

Up to now, POWERCHINA has no completed projects in Iraq yet, while there are 7 projects involved in the power and infrastructure sectors under construction with a total contract value of USD 3.63 billion, such as the Rumaila 730 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant and the Iraqi Model Schools.

Rumaila 730 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant is our first project in Iraq that uses Chinese funds. Now the project is almost completed. 2 units have been connected to the grid for power generation, and it has provided more than 468 million kWh of electricity to southern Iraq by the end of 2021, making great contributions to alleviating electricity tension and improving people's livelihood in southern Iraq. 

Iraqi Model Schools, the most important and urgent projects for POWERCHINA in Iraq, are located in ten provinces in the south and central part of the country, and now are in full construction.
