Saudi Arabia announces official launch of Iraq powergrid project

Saudi Arabia has announced the launch of the powergrid interconnection project with Iraq, which entails the implementation of a dual-circuit transmission line linking the northern city of Arar in KSA to Yusufiya in western Baghdad, boasting an initial capacity of 1000 megawatts. The agreement for the project was signed by GCC Interconnection Authority (GCCIA) and Iraq on the sidelines of the ‘Jeddah Summit for Security and Development’ in July last year.
