JinkoSolar recently delivered 328,320 photovoltaic panels to power the largest Solar power plant in Jordan.
Located in the south of Jordan near Aqaba, Quweira project is expected to annually produce 227GWh of solar power over a period of 20 years and is able to supply energy to more than 51,000 houses.
The power plant is built under contract with the Jordanian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) and has been executed under the management of a Joint Venture (JV) company between Enviromena Power Systems and TSK. The plant is said to be in line with the Jordanian Government’s objective of generating 20% of energy from renewables by early-2020.
