Gigawatt Scale Solar PV Project Planned in Jordan
http://www.renewableenergyworld.com/rea/news/story?id=5...

The Al-Husseini Group, a real estate, industrial and trading organization based in Amman, Jordan, and Amelio Solar, a developer of solar photovoltaic (PV) module technologies announced a joint venture to bring large-scale solar PV energy production capacity to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in cooperation with the government and the national utility.

The joint venture has launched a multi-year project to construct a 1-gigawatt (GW) PV power generation plant in Jordan, including an integrated 200-MW thin-film PV module factory that will serve as a dedicated source of Amelio Solar thin-film photovoltaic modules to supply the power plant.

The joint venture first plans to deploy and operate a factory in Jordan to produce thin-film amorphous silicon, CIGS (copper-indium-gallium-diselenide) and related hybrid PV modules using a manufacturing platform created and installed by Amelio Solar.

Over a three-year installation period, the factory will reach an annual PV module manufacturing capacity of 200 MW, beginning with a 22 MW manufacturing line to be completed in 2009. The PV modules produced by this factory will be used primarily in the construction of a PV power generation plant in Jordan designed by Amelio Solar which will reach a total power generation capacity of 1 GW by 2017.
