TEHRAN, Iran, Sep. 30
Iran seeks to help rebuild war-torn Syria’s electrical infrastructure, Trend reports citing Fars News Agency.
According to statistics, the Syrian crisis has led to $7.2 billion of loss. Syria's electricity production in 2010 was about 45,000 GWh, which has decreased to 18,000 GWh in 2018.
Iran is among the few countries that can participate in reconstruction of a power plant in Syria due to its technical capability.
In 2018, the Iranian MAPNA Group signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Syrian Public Establishment of Electricity for Generation (PEEG) for constructing a 540 megawatt (MW) combined-cycle power plant in Syrian port city of Latakia.
