Bids to supply 75-90 MW of wind turbines to Jordan are being evaluated by German consultants Lahmeyer International at the request of the Jordanian government. The bids, for three stations in a Build-Own-Operate project, have been submitted by Spain's Energía Hidroeléctrica Navarra and WindSolar of Germany. The planned wind stations, one in the north of Jordan and two in the south, are a pilot venture, according to Lahmeyer's Rüdiger Kipke. The legal details, including a power purchase agreement, will be negotiated over the coming months with the involvement of Canadian legal company McCarthy, he adds. A feasibility study for wind development was carried out by Deutsche Energie Consult Ingenieurgesellschaft (Decon) and financed by German development aid organisation GTZ (Windpower Monthly, June 2001).
