The project consists of 38 V112-3.0 MW turbines which will be installed about 180 km south of Amman, in the Tafila region, Jordan. Delivery of the turbines will start in the second quarter of 2014, and the wind power plant is expected to be commissioned in the second quarter of 2015.

The contract for the Al Tafila wind power plant includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, civil and electrical works, a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution as well as a 10-year custom-designed energy based service agreement for the entire wind power plant.

The order has been placed by Jordan Wind Project Company (JWPC), a company set up by InfraMed Infrastructure, Masdar and EP Global Energy (EPGE).

“JWPC’s 117 MW Tafila wind power plant is the first utility-scale renewable-energy project in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and in the region, and is a major step towards getting Jordan on the renewable energy map of the world,” said Samer Judeh, chairman of JWPC. “His Majesty King Abdullah’s vision and the Jordanian Government's strategy, aims to encourage investors and financiers to make these vital projects possible.”

Mr Judeh added that the new project will serve to demonstrate the region's potential for investments in renewable energy. "Our country has suffered from a lack of domestic conventional energy sources and from serious challenges in security of energy imports," he added. "Jordan, however, has abundant renewable resources, and this will be the first and a showcase for many such projects to come. Renewable energy sources are now among the priorities on the Jordanian government’s agenda, both for the expected economic as well as environmental benefits. To be able to generate cost efficient wind power, we selected Vestas and the V112-3.0 MW, after extensive assessment and independent verification, and the V112 turbines proved to be a perfect fit to our project,” concludes Samer Judeh.

Juan Araluce, Executive Vice President & Chief Sales Officer of Vestas Wind Systems A/S, comments: “Jordan imports around 97 per cent of its energy, 1) being not only heavily dependent on volatile prices, but also forced to introduce rationing power schemes when it does not succeed in meeting the population’s energy demand. Wind is therefore part of the solution to the country’s energy shortage both from a cost as well as from a capacity point of view.”

And he continues “The Al Tafila wind power plant represents a milestone both for Vestas and for Jordan. Vestas is proud to provide 117 MW of wind energy capacity for the very first utility-scale wind power plant in the country to support Jordan’s goal of developing renewable energy at stable and predictable prices and a tangible result of Vestas’ commitment and business development efforts in the Middle East and North Africa region.”

The Al Tafila wind power plant will have an estimated annual production of approximately 400 GWh, which will save the environment from more than 225,000 tons of CO2 emissions on an annual basis.
