Amman – 21 December 2015: Enviromena Power Systems (“Enviromena”), a UAE-based international solar photovoltaic integrator, and TSK Group, a Spanish engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, have been awarded a contract to build a 103-megawatt solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Jordan’s southern region of Al Quweira. Jordan’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources will fund the $128 million solar plant through a grant from Abu Dhabi Fund for Development.
