ESIA for developing a 50 MWac Solar PV Project

Project Sector:
Jordan, Al-Mafraq

Client  Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV)

Project Description:

The PV plant will be constructed with Polycrystalline PV modules and single axis trackers system to maximize the annual energy yield. The plant will have a control room for the monitoring and guards, a warehouse area for extra equipment and a water storage area for cleaning the PV modules.

FRV Solar Plant is proposed to be connected to the National Electric Power Company (NEPCO) existing 33/132kV Substation 5km away from the project location which falls within the KHBTDA.

The Plant will be connected via 5km of 33kV underground cables for evacuation to the grid. Interconnection is subject to final Interconnection Agreement to be received from NEPCO and MEMR

A surface hydrological study was also prepared by Arabtech Jardaneh which studied storm water in the project area based on existing topographic condition and conducted a hydrological calculation for the available catchment areas within the project to provide cost effective design. The study provided the peak flood estimates that determine the required design discharge for the cross project drainage structures. And estimated the flow that crosses the project in order to convey these flows safely across the project since the hydraulic design is an important aspect.
