Jordan’s government could have 30MW / 60MWh electricity storage plant finished by April 2019
The government of Jordan has given parties interested in delivering a 30MW energy storage system in the Kingdom six months to come up with technical and financial offers.
Following a July 2017 Request for Submissions of Interest (REOI), issued by the country’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) on which it was advised by Fichtner, in late December the ministry qualified 23 interested parties to submit further details of their proposals, from a field of 41 interested companies.
The REOI called for the development of energy storage projects in two phases, with the first to be a 30MW / 60MWh electricity storage plant, at a substation in Ma’an currently used to integrate the output of several PV plants onto the grid. The second phase’s scope and size is to be determined.
