The United Nations' Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) has opened a tender to find a developer for a 3.5 MW solar wheeling station in South Amman, Jordan.
The call for expressions of interest – which closes on Monday, June 11 – seeks a developer for the station, which will be used to transfer electrical power outside an existing grid to supply more than 100 refugee installations including health centers, schools, a warehouse, training centers and offices, according to the tender document.
The wheeling station, to be built in Na'ur, and which is intended to be operational by the start of July 2019, will supply power for refugee facilities in Amman and Zarqa and is being backed by an unnamed private equity fund which can call upon up to USD8.5 million for the project.
Jordan, along with the United Arab Emirates, are the leading lights of a burgeoning Middle East solar market that is expected to bring 8 GW of project tenders this year, according U.S. market research company GTM Research.
