Kuwait’s Electricity Ministry signs agreements to address rising energy needs

The Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy is set to distribute the Excellent Business Bonus to its second batch of eligible employees, comprising 3,500 to 4,000 individuals from various sectors. Additionally, agreements have been made to modernize and extend the service life of 8 boilers at Al-Zour South Station. This includes replacing the control system for boilers and steam turbines to meet growing energy demands. A memorandum of understanding has been signed with the Gulf Electricity Interconnection Authority to negotiate electricity purchasing from Saudi Arabia. Plans are also in progress to integrate 300 megawatts from Oman’s network into Kuwait’s power infrastructure.

Electricity consumption has risen sharply due to high temperatures, with yesterday’s load index peaking at 16,120 megawatts. Kuwait has begun receiving 200 megawatts from Qatar, with arrangements being made to receive the rest from Oman.
