After the experience with it at the station Besmaya giant, which previously described as successful for the provision of high energy power may cover the next year the need of the capital Baghdad, which, according to the Ministry of Electricity now on the spokesman for the US General Electric Company operations at the stations of Dhi Qar and Samawa gas, which Will enter the system of control and control of distribution stations through the Internet, noting that the two stations will enter the service 1000 MW before the summer of 2018, and provide 3000 thousand jobs for the children of the two provinces.

We have introduced a system of control and control of distribution stations, although we have a wide and sophisticated communication system in the ministry, but we seek to develop them as science and technology develops, to control the distribution process remotely, but we have a problem is the existence of excesses that occur from the southern provinces during peak load periods, Outside The ministry's control, which forces us to extinguish the stations remotely, although the ministry turned to control the energy in the involvement of the private sector with the work of the Ministry of Electricity has concluded many contracts with him within the city of Baghdad and other provinces are service contracts and collection and maintenance through which we will end the rumors that reached more than 60% of the production system.
