The process is being carried out under Jordan's direct proposal system, whereby private-sector investors can submit projects to the government without going through a tender.

Korea Southern Power Co (a subsidiary of Kepco); Alstom Renovables España; China International Water and Electric Corp; and Lamsa Investments, a consortium including EP Global Energy, which is building the 117MW Tafilah project, are the four qualifiers.

The government has asked for further clarification regarding proposals from local developer International Vision for Energy and Recycling and Gamesa Energia. They were were submitted in response to a government call for expressions of interest launched last year.

Successful candidates will sign a memorandum of understanding with the energy and mineral resources ministry enabling them to develop their proposal. Wind power projects will be eligible for a feed-in tariff capped at JOD 0.085/kWh (EUR 0.087).
