Development of solar energy for pumping works in the Jordan Valley

CLIENT GIZ (Germany)
START DATE : April 2015
END DATE : November 2015

Project description

Feasibility study to evaluate the use of solar panels to supply pumping stations and especially farm-level pumping systems.

The initial idea was to supply JVA pumping stations around the King Abdullah canal (110 km, 20 m3/s) directly. However, field studies resulted in a change in focus, concentrating more on the feasibility of generating power on JVA-owned land and canals.
