Renewables

With its headquarters in Jordan, Engicon has been able to play a major role in the development of the renewable energy sector in the Kingdom. Our environmental and engineering experience have been invaluable in paving the way for constructing and developing alternative energy sources.

In both solar and wind energy, our engineers and experts have provided energy developers with environmental impact studies and numerous infrastructure assessment and drainage studies, as well as designs of supporting facilities. We appreciate that for these developers, investing in new projects is never straightforward. Both regulatory and engineering obstacles exist. We have a proven track record in working with our partners on overcoming such obstacles.

Our services are not limited to developers. We work with large industrial clients, assisting them in renewable solutions to reduce their energy bills. We work with our partners on the initial feasibility, the scope of work, and the tender documents for EPC contractors, as well as grid impact studies required by utilities and other necessary approvals.

Renewables services we provide include:

  • Feasibility studies
  • MEP engineering
  • Environmental impact assessments
  • Grid impact assessments
  • Hazard & industrial waste management
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • Construction management and supervision

Sample Projects

Fujeij Wind Farm IPP

Fujeij Wind Farm IPP

Country: Jordan
Client: Brinckerhoff
Year Completed: 2015

The project consists of a wind farm with 45 wind turbines and a total operating capacity of 90 megawatts. It is located in the Fujeij area near the southern city of Ma’an, Jordan. Engicon’s scope included carrying out the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment ESIA, as well as assisting in the application for the Ministry of Environment review.

Photovoltaic Project for Sheraton & Marriott Hotels

Photovoltaic Project for Sheraton & Marriott Hotels

Country: Jordan
Client: Arab International Hotels & Al Dawliyah for Hotels
Year Completed: 2015

As hotels are the some of largest commercial consumers of energy in Jordan, hotel investments in renewable energy have become among the most economically feasible and environmentally viable.

In that spirit, and as hotels cannot meet their energy needs through rooftop PV cells, the Sheraton and Marriott Hotels invested in developingan  off-site photovoltaic project to cover their electricity needs. The project is located in the Mwaqqar area in Amman with a capacity of around 7MW.

Engicon performed consultancy services for the project, including preparing the Environmental Impact Assessment along with supporting engineering services, geotechnical investigations, topographic surveys, and water course diversion and channel design, in addition to the design of the required access road and transformer room according to Jordan Electric Power Company requirements.
