An international tender call to investigate wind power potential in northern Iraq has been launched by the Kurdistan regional government as part of its strategy to develop its infrastructure and diversify the energy sector. The development of hydro and, to a lesser extent, wind power plant will also enable Iraq to export more of its valuable oil and gas reserves. The successful bidder will be required to carry out detailed feasibility studies in the Erbil, Dohuk and Suleimaniah regions, including designing suitable installations for the nominated sites. Bids were to be submitted by October 20, with an announcement of winners possibly this month.
