Sterling & Wilson Commissions 66 MWp Solar Energy Project in Jordan

Sterling and Wilson Solar Limited, a leading solar EPC and O&M solutions provider, has commissioned a 66 MWp Al Husainiyah solar power plant in Jordan.

The project, located on an area of 1.3 sq. km in Ma’an Governorate, 200 km south of Amman, was executed with more than 850,000 safe manhours during the pandemic, by following all the necessary safety protocols and guidelines set by the local authorities, stated the company.

The Al Husainiyah project is expected to save around 50,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually, thus striving to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and unlocking large scale solar opportunities for the country.

Mr. Amit Jain, Global CEO, Sterling and Wilson Solar Group said, “We are delighted to announce the commissioning of the Al Husainiyah project in Jordan amid such difficult times. Due to the outspread of COVID-19 and subsequent lockdowns in India and other countries, there were delays in manufacturing, FAT of material and construction work at the site.”

“However, we arranged priority deliveries for material from OEMs, enabled remote monitoring, hired a local team, and provided necessary training to them, to deliver the project as per the agreed timelines,” he said.

“This is our third project in the country, and we are proud to be a contributing player in Government of Jordan’s mission of switching to renewable energy. These projects are critical for Jordan’s economic growth by reducing its reliance on costly hydrocarbon imports for power generation”, Jain further added.

Sterling and Wilson Solar Limited has been executing projects globally and has to its credit more than 11.4 GWp of solar power projects (commissioned and under various stages of construction) in various geographies.

The company also manages a portfolio of 8.8 GWp of O&M projects globally and has executed multiple projects in MENA (Middle East and North Africa) with a portfolio of around 2.2 GWp.
