The Northern Cement State Company has concluded a number of contracts to set up electricity stations with the aim of boosting the production levels of two factories, the Iraqi Ministry of Industry and Minerals said on Tuesday.
"The first stage has been launched in Badoush factory station at a capacity of 15 megawatts, in addition to an experimental launch of Sinjar factory station at a capacity of 30 megawatts," according to a ministerial statement received by Aswat al-Iraq - Voices of Iraq - (VOI), quoting an official source in the company.
"Work on the two stations stopped after the Turkish operational team had left due to security conditions in Ninewa province," the source noted.
Agreements have been made with the Turkish Aqsa and Rasa companies to complete the work in the two station in the coming few days, he added.
