Kirkuk currently requires 880 MW, but can only provide 450 MW: 240 MW from the national grid and 225 MW through a contract with Kurdish investor.
Rebwar Talabani, the Deputy head of Kirkuk Provincial Council, told AKnews that American, British, Turkish and Arab companies are building the 500 MW plant the Council approved last year.
The location for the project will be decided in coordination with the power distribution and transportation offices.
A small new power plant was built in December in the Darman village area of Kirkuk.
