Norway-headquartered solar power producer Scatec Solar ASA has completed its third solar power plant in Jordan, a 22-MW facility, and now has a total of 43 MW in operation in the country, it said Thursday.
The 22-MW installation, built under the Jordanian Renewable Energy Programme, is 50.1%-owned by Scatec Solar, while the company's local development partner, European Jordanian Renewable Energy (EJRE), holds 49.9%.
Scatec Solar's two other projects in Jordan, the 10-MW Oryx plant and the 11-MW GLAE facility, reached commercial operation in June and July, respectively. They were developed with local partners, too.
The newly commissioned 22-MW plant is expected to produce more than 52,000 MWh of electricity per year, enough to meet the needs of about 10,000 households, according to the announcement. It has a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the state utility, NEPCO.
Scatec Solar secured financing for the three Jordanian projects in November 2014.
