Jordan to provide electricity to Iraq

Shafaq News / the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity announced today, Tuesday, that the electrical connection with Jordan is the first step for "The Eight Countries Electric Interconnection Project."

Iraq is seeking to construct a regional electricity network known as The Eight Countries Electric Interconnection Project that aims to connect the electric networks of Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Palestine, Syria and Turkey. And it is planned to finish the connection among these countries in the coming period.

The spokesman for the Ministry of Electricity, Ahmed Moussa, said in an interview with Shafaq News Agency, "The electrical connection agreement with Jordan provides Iraq with 150 megawatts as a first stage, and up to 960 megawatts later, which is the main step for the Iraqi-Jordanian connection and followed by the Egyptian's."

Moussa stressed that "the electrical interconnection with neighboring countries is considered one of the ministry's strategic projects because it will achieve stability for the national system."

On Sunday, September 27, Jordan and Iraq signed an agreement on which Jordan will supply Iraq with electrical energy after connecting the electricity network between the two countries, in which Jordan will supply the Iraqi side in the first phase of the project with 1000 GWh annually.
