The Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ) has issued two invitations for prequalification to select developers interested in developing 30 MW of PV capacity at two of its water stations.
The prequalification and tendering process for both tenders is being financed with the proceeds of a grant from the EU Delegation, administered by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
Through one of the two tenders, the WAJ intends to develop a 6 MW solar power plant at its Zara Ma’in Water Station. The contract includes the design, build, operation and maintenance of the solar facility, while the time for completion of work is eight months, followed by a 60 month operation and maintenance period. The deadline to submit prequalification documents is February 20, 2018.
A second tender will be launched for the construction of a 24 MW solar plant at the Disi aquifer, where WAJ is developing the Disi Water Conveyance Project, a water supply project that is designed to pump 100,000,000 cubic metres to Amman, the country's capital city. The contract has the same conditions and deadline as the tender for the 6 MW project.
Both projects are intended to be used for water pumping at the two water stations. EBRD started to seek consultants for the projects in early 2017. Germany’s Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) is also supporting the WAJ in improving the energy efficiency of its water pumping stations.
