pv magazine has learned that construction will begin in 2016 on a new 50 MW solar PV plant at the Al-Hussein Bin Talal University, in Jordan. The project will use Yingli modules and ABB inverters, and is a further indication of the increasingly dynamic PV sector in Jordan.
News of solar PV plans in Jordan is coming in fast and thick on the back of announcements last week that projects totaling 200 MW had been tendered at record low prices. The country appears to be gearing up for its day in the sun, but it can’t afford to rest on its laurels, with the fossil fuel industries still lobbying heavily.
The successful bidders under Jordans second 200 MW PV tender round have been announced. Two from Saudi Arabia have generated hopes for a spillover of the uplifting solar mood to the nearby Arab state.
Jordan’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources has chosen the winners of its second tender round. Overall, four 50 MW PV plants have been selected at record low tariffs, serving to highlight increased efficiencies, falling equipment costs and grid parity advances in the PV industry.
Jordan’s University of Science and Technology is currently tendering the engineering, procurement and construction of a 5 MW solar PV plant on its premises in the city of Irbid. Apart from Jordan’s universities, where the installation of solar PV has emerged as a trend, the technology is also gaining ground among other educational and cultural insitutions, including schools and museums.
pv magazine has learned the Hashemite University is soon going to announce the winner of its tender for a 5 MW solar PV park at its premises in the city of Zarqa in northeast Jordan. The solar installation represents an overall trend in the country, where an increasing number of educational institutions are embracing PV.
