Pilot Project to Transfer Coal to Jordan Okayed

The National Planning and Construction Council approved, Tuesday, a limited pilot project to examine the possibility of transferring coal from the Orot Rabin power plant in Hadera to Jordan, subject to environmental regulations.

The decision was in response to a request from Jordan power officials and Israel's Global CST company, in the wake of disruptions to Jordan's coal supply due to the civil war in neighboring Syria.
