Titre : FRV/Empire Al Mafraq Solar PV Project (Jordan)

Pays : Jordan

Date : 2016

Descriptif
A senior secured loan of up to USD 35.5million to finance the construction of a 50 MW solar photovoltaic plant located within the King Hussein Bin Talal Development Area near the city of Al Mafraq in Mafraq Governorate, 80 km north of Amman in Jordan. The Project will be one of the first utility-scale solar plants of this size in Jordan and will support the country in increasing its renewable energy capacity and reducing its reliance on costly hydrocarbon imports

Objectif
Project rationale stems from Jordan’s strategy to procure cost-effective, indigenous energy supplies to mitigate its energy crisis. As part of the government’s second round of direct proposals for solar ("Round 2"), the Project represents an important part of its ambitious programme to generate 10% of Jordan’s electricity demand from renewables by 2020.
