Danish Vestas received a 45-megawatt wind farm order in Jordan, the company said on Thursday.
Vestas said that it received an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) order for the Al Shobak wind farm to be located in the Ma'an governorate within the district of Shobak in southern Jordan.
Shobak Wind Energy, a new customer and majority-owned subsidiary of Alcazar Energy, a Dubai-based independent developer and power producer focused on renewable energy generation in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa, placed the order.
The project is Vestas' third EPC contract for utility-scale wind parks in Jordan, following Al Tafila with 114 megawatts and Fujeij with 89 megawatts.
Turbine delivery is planned for the second quarter of 2019, while commissioning is expected by the end of 2019.
