The Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ) has launched two PV tenders with a cumulative capacity of 30 MW. It has issued a request for prequalification for a 6 MW project in the Zara Ma’in Water Station and a 24 MW PV generation system to be located in Disi area.
Both the projects are funded by a European Union (EU) grant, administered by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). WAJ will use part of the proceeds to cover the cost of contract prequalification and tendering of the Jordan Water Framework Photovoltaic Plants for Pumping Station. The 6 MW project must be completed within eight months and the 24 MW project in 12 months. The winners of the tenders will design and build the PV systems and be responsible for operation and maintenance for 60 months.
The tenders are opened to all companies or joint ventures. The last date to submit tenders is February 20. Results of prequalification will be announced in April 2018, and invitations for tenders will be floated in the following month. Contracts will be awarded to the winners in September or October 2018.
