PV Plant in Jordan to launch

A consortium of Jordanian and global organizations have announced the planned launch of Shams Ma'an, expected to be one of the world's largest photovoltaic (PV) power plants with an initial capacity of 100 MW.

Located in southern Jordan, Shams Ma'an will be the fruit of an agreement to be signed between Kawar Energy (leading a consortium of Solar Ventures and 1st International for Investment and Trade Company) and Ma'an Development Company (MDC).

The facility will be an important step for Jordan toward long-term energy independence and a green environment.
