FMO's intended client is Alsafawi for Green Energy PSC, a special purpose vehicle incorporated in Jordan to develop, construct and maintain a solar power plant in the Mafraq region of northern Jordan.
FMO intends to provide a USD 35.0mln senior loan to Alsafawi for Green Energy PSC, financed by FMO-A (USD 30mln) and IDF (USD 5mln). The objective of FMO's financing is to fund the development and construction of a 66.6MWp (51.0MWac) solar PV plant in northern Jordan. Once operational, this power plant will generate approximately 143GWh annually, serving approximately 60,403 customers based on a per capita consumption of 2,357 kWh. The project serves to meet the growing demand for electricity in Jordan. By generating electricity from a renewable energy source, this solar plant is expected to avoid the emission of approximately 91.5 kilotons of CO2eq per annum. The project contributes to a diversification of Jordan's fuel mix and provides for energy security by generating electricity from a domestic resource. It contributes to reducing the marginal cost of electricity in the country by generating electricity at a tariff close to half the long-term cost of generation in Jordan.
