Syria, Iran sign deal to rebuild power plant

Damascus, Oct 26 (Prensa Latina) Syrian Electricity Ministry and Iranian Bimanir Company on Tuesday reached to an agreement to rehabilitate the Mahardah power station in the northwest of Hama province.

The deal worths nearly 100 million euros and a 26-month reconstruction term to generate 576 megawatts, Minister Ghassan al-Zamil said.

He cleared up that it is the first time that the Ministry of Electricity has contracted the Iranian Company, and there will be a specialized team to follow up on its work.

Al-Zamil detailed that all power plants ravaged by terror attacks will gradually return to operate by signing contracts with companies from friendly countries.

The Mahardah power station has suffered dozens of rocket and projectile attacks by terrorists who controlled areas close to it.

Syria generated nearly 9,000 megawatts and exported to neighboring countries, while this figure dropped to only 2,000 and thus population is currently facing up up to 18-hour blackouts per day.
