Project Description
The project consists of the construction, operation and maintenance of a 51.75MW (installed capacity) wind farm in Jordan's Tafila Governorate (the “Project”). The Project will be an Independent Power Producer, generating about 153 GWh annually for sale to the National Electric Power Company under a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement. Turbine supplier Vestas will be the Engineering, Procurement and Construction and the equipment Operations and Maintenance contractor. Construction is expected to begin in January 2018 and operations by mid-2019.
People Affected By This Project
The Project will: (i) add new generation capacity in Jordan and generate over 153 GWh, meeting growing demand for energy and serving ~27,000 customers annually; (ii) diversify Jordan's fuel mix and provide for energy security by generating electricity from a domestic, indigenous resource which is currently not being used; and (iii) avoid greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) of approximately 112,000 tons of CO2 per annum that would have otherwise been generated from fossil fuel usage.
