Abu Dhabi-Jordan Solar Deal Expected
A solar deal between Abu Dhabi and Jordan is among the announcements expected to be made at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) which gets under way on Monday.
The renewable energy company Masdar is set to unveil a contract win for a 200 megawatt solar power plant in Jordan. The project will cost about US$200 million, Bloomberg reported on Sunday, quoting Ibrahim Saif, Jordan’s minister of energy and mineral resources.
Ahmad Belhoul, chief executive of the Abu Dhabi-based clean energy company, said that Jordan was an important market for Masdar and it would continue to explore various projects in the kingdom. “We will make an announcement on our activities in the kingdom in due course,” said Mr Belhoul. Details
