AMMAN — Energy Minister Mohammad Hamed on Saturday called for developing coordination between the Qatraneh Power Plant and the control unit at the National Electric Power Company (NEPCO) to ensure the safety of the power grid.

He made his remarks during a visit to the power station to examine the reasons behind a recent two-hour blackout that affected the Kingdom’s northern region and parts of the capital, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Last week, Hamed formed a committee to look into the reasons behind the power outage and present a report by Sunday detailing its causes and providing recommendations to avoid the recurrence of the incident.
