The move, which comes as part of an agreement made in January of last year, will increase the supply of electricity to Palestine from 40 megawatts to 80 megawatts.

The project is “vital to cementing cooperation between Jordan and Palestine”, NEPCO Director-General Amjad Rawasheh said during an inspection of the power station on Tuesday.

He underlined the importance of this move within the framework of the pan-Arab electric interconnection projects to serve the joint Arab market and meet the electricity needs of Palestinians. The project, he said, is the second phase of the Jordanian-Palestinian electric interconnection and builds on years of achievements.

Rawashdeh furthermore highlighted the ongoing cooperation with Palestine within joint technical studies to continue providing solutions that increase supply, as well as continuing to train Palestinian technical staff in Jordan through a special NEPCO training program that features establishing, operating, and maintaining electrical systems.

On January 15, 2020, NEPCO signed an agreement to increase its power supply to Palestine as part of a cooperation project that began in 2008.
