AMMAN, March 28 (Xinhua) -- An electricity grid interconnection between Jordan and Iraq is set to start operation on March 30, the general manager of Jordan's National Electricity Power Company said on Thursday.

The interconnection will link the Al-Risha electrical station in eastern Jordan, adjacent to the Iraqi border, to the Al-Rutba station in western Iraq, operating at a voltage of 132 kilovolts. The interconnection aims to provide electricity from Jordan to the Al-Rutba area near the border with Jordan, the state-run Petra news agency quoted Amjad Al-Rawashdeh as saying.

The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity recently announced the successful completion of the Jordanian-Iraqi power transmission line's operation, confirming its scheduled launch on March 30.

In February, Iraq and Jordan signed a deal under which Jordan committed to supplying the Iraqi side with 40 megawatts of electric power in the first phase, part of a comprehensive Arab plan aimed at establishing a joint Arab energy market in the future. Enditem
