Jordan starts Supplying Iraq with Electricity

The first phase of the project to connect Iraq and Jordan electrically was officially opened on Saturday morning by Iraq’s Minister of Electricity, Ziad Ali Fadel.

The Rawa district will profit from this hookup by receiving 40 to 50 megawatts of electricity, as terrorist organizations have destroyed infrastructure, leaving it without electricity for more than a decade.

Minister Fadel underlined the significance of interconnection projects, stressing their high level of technical advantages and dependability for the electricity grid, which increase supply hours and stability.

Up to 500 megawatts of further project phases are planned. Additionally, he said that the electrical connecting project between Iraq and the Gulf is nearing completion and that connections to Saudi Arabia are proceeding as planned.
