Phoenix Solar to build 11 MW of PV in Jordan


German PV system integrator Phoenix Solar AG said on Wednesday that said the company and it and local partner Millennium Energy Industries had secured an order to build three PV power plants with a total capacity of 11 MWp in Jordan – reportedly the largest private sector solar project in the country.

Phoenix Solar and Millennium Energy will build the plants for three hotel operators, Arab International Hotels Plc, owner of Marriott Amman, Al Dawliyah for Hotels & Malls Plc, owner of Sheraton Amman, and Business Tourism Company, owner of the Marriott Dead Sea and Marriott Petra. The solar project will enable the hotels to generate 100% of their electric power needs from solar energy.

Phoenix Solar will carry out all engineering, procurement and project management duties while Millennium Energy Industries will oversee the actual construction work. Phoenix Solar will also be responsible for the operation and maintenance for the three power plants.
