Melhem said that he will head a Palestinian delegation that will come to Amman in the next 10 days to meet with Jordanian Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Saleh Al-Kharabsheh and the General Manager of the National Electric Power Company Amjad Rawashdeh.

He added that discussions will center on achievements so far at the station which aims to increase electricity exported to Palestine from the current 40MW to 80MW.

Melhem noted that the project will include a third phase aiming to increase the power exported to Palestine in the upcoming years.

He said that the project was supposed to be already completed, “but, we hope to wrap up the project soon”, adding that the new amount of electricity will supply Jerusalem, Ramallah and Jericho.
