The Al-Husseini Group, a diversified real estate, industrial and trading organization based in Amman, Jordan, and PV module manufacturer Amelio Solar have initiated a joint venture to bring large-scale photovoltaic energy production capacity to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in cooperation with the government and the national utility.
The joint venture has launched a multi-year project to construct a 1 GW photovoltaic power generation plant in Jordan, including an integrated 200 MW thin-film photovoltaic module factory that will serve as a dedicated, low-cost source of Amelio Solar thin-film photovoltaic modules to supply the power plant.
The companies will first deploy and operate a factory in Jordan to produce thin-film amorphous silicon, CIGS and related hybrid photovoltaic modules using a manufacturing platform created and installed by Amelio Solar. Over a three-year installation period, the factory will reach an annual manufacturing capacity of 200 MW, beginning with a 22 MW manufacturing line to be completed in 2009.
