The Jordanian-Iraqi electrical connection will enter service next Saturday

The Jordanian National Electricity Company announced, on Thursday, that the electrical interconnection line with Iraq will enter service as of next Saturday.

This came in a statement made by the company’s general manager (the energy service provider in the Kingdom), Amjad Al-Rawashdeh, to the official Jordanian News Agency (Petra)..

Al-Rawashdeh stated, “The line will be shared between the Jordanian Al-Risha electrical station and the Iraqi Al-Rutba station, with a voltage of 132 kilovolts (13 megawatts), to feed the loads of the Al-Rutba area near the border with Jordan.”“.

While the Jordanian Agency quoted the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity as confirming the completion of operation of the Iraqi-Jordanian electric line, setting the same date for entering service..

Last February, Jordan and Iraq signed a document to supply the Iraqi side with electrical energy, with a capacity of 40 megawatts in the first phase.

Iraq suffers from a gap in the production of electrical energy, compared to the actual consumption, which amounts to more than 23 thousand megawatts, compared to a previous production of 19 thousand megawatts.
