Powering the world

Amman, Asia Electric Power Company

IPP3 Power Plant, Jordan

573 MW

Right next to a tinderbox lies the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, an upper-income economy ranked with an advanced status by the European Union since 2010. With its quickly growing young population and increasing GDP, Jordan’s rising electricity needs are racing against futile fuel supplies. Historically seen as an energy-poor country, the kingdom continuously imports 97% of its fuel from abroad.

"By starting one engine at a time, the plant can follow the demand very precisely.”
Taemin Kim, Administration Manager at Amman Asia Electric Power Company
