GE has signed a 12-year contract with Mass Global Investment Company, an independent power producer in Northern Iraq, to ensure long-term reliability and performance of 18 GE gas turbines in the Kurdistan region.

The agreement is for 18 turbines at the Arbil, Sulaimaniyah and Dohuk power plants. The contract covers the supply of parts and repairs services for planned outages of the GE Frame 9E gas turbines over a period of 12 years.

A training programme for more than 30 Mass Global engineers under the contract will also enhance local expertise.

This agreement follows earlier announcements that GE is supplying Frame 9E gas turbines to Arbil, Sulaimaniyah and Dohuk provinces to generate more than 2250 MW for the Kurdistan region.
