"GE's 9E gas turbines are an excellent fit for Jordan as they operate reliably and efficiently in extreme conditions such as desert heat and offer tremendous versatility and fuel flexibility, capable of running on more than 50 different kinds of fuels, thus allowing Nepco
to utilise more economical fuels and leading to lower costs of power production," he added.
The natural gas for the project is supplied by NEPCO
through a new gas pipeline connecting the project with Jordan's main gas pipeline.
Khaled Irani, senior advisor at Alcazar Energy added: "The Al Rajef Wind Farm is a positive contribution to Jordan's growing renewable energy landscape, and we are grateful to have the timely support and cooperation from the Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources, NEPCO
and the Government of Jordan in achieving this milestone together."
Another landmark deal for Israel was the gas sales and purchase agreement that was agreed in September 2016 between Noble Energy and its partners and Jordan's Nepco
, to supply 3 bcm/yr gas over 15-years, on an oil-price-linked and take-or-pay basis, reported to be worth about $10 billion.
As per the agreement, Acwa Power will sell electricity to Nepco
for a record-low tariff of JD42 fils per kWh, the lowest tariff for solar energy ever presented for a Jordan-based project, 3.3 per cent lower than the previous lowest tariff provided to Jordan with the Mafraq PV project (also developed by Acwa Power under the Round II of Proposals for Renewable Energy in Jordan).
"We include NEPCO
's debt (nearly 10 per cent of GDP) as part of the general government debt stock, which we estimate at nearly 80 per cent of GDP in 2016.
will announce the next tender, 2018-2019, after re-evaluating its needs for gas for these years," the source said as the new tender will occur after a recent one was only partially awarded.
The parliamentary ad hoc panel, representing the finance and energy committees, has insisted that the government reconsider the price hike as a solution to the National Electric Power Company 's ( NEPCO
) losses after the recent sharp drops in oil prices internationally.
These steps, though, have contributed to a higher central government deficit and rising operating losses of the NEPCO
(National Electric Power Comapny), which subsidised electricity tariffs.
