Gamesa and Elecnor consortium to develop 86MW wind project in Jordan


In a consortium with energy group Elecnor, Spanish wind turbine manufacturing company Gamesa has secured a new contract to develop a 86MW windpower plant in Maan, southern Jordan.

The project was awarded by Jordanian incorporated special purpose vehicle Green Watts Renewable Energy, which is a fully-owned subsidiary of Alcazar Energy. To be constructed on a turnkey basis, the new Al Rajef project will feature 41 G114-2.1MW wind turbines.

Under the terms of the deal, Gamesa will not only be responsible for the deployment of the wind turbines but will also operate and maintain the plant for 20 years.

"The new Al Rajef project will feature 41 G114-2.1MW wind turbines."

As part of the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract, Gamesa will deliver the entire infrastructure required to install and operate the facility. It will start delivering the turbines in autumn next year.

While the project is expected to be commissioned in September 2018, the 86MW windpower plant will become fully operational by October in the same year. With its completion, Gamesa will have developed its second windpower project in Maan, Jordan.
