OVERVIEW

The project consists of the design, construction, ownership and operation of a 485MW (net generating capacity after deducting auxiliary electricity consumption) combined cycle gas fired power plant located 31 km north east of Amman in the city of Zarqa Industrial Zone, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (the “project”). The project will substitute Hussein Thermal Power Station, one of the oldest and most inefficient Heavy fuel oil (HFO)–fired power plants in Jordan which was decommissioned in December 2015, with a more efficient power plant.
