Jordan to have 12MWh solar storage system

by Baset Asaba on Aug 10, 2017




A solar farm in Jordan is poised to be equipped with the largest storage battery in the Middle East. At 12 MWh and 4 MWac, the lithium-ion battery being installed by Al Badiya at a 12 MW solar plant in Al-Mafraq is far bigger than any current storage system in the region, reported PV-Magazine.

The battery will augment the solar plant’s 11 MWp expansion, and offer peak shaving capabilities to increase the stability of the local grid and enhance the solar plant’s output. A power purchase agreement (PPA) has been signed this week with Irbid District Electricity Company (IDECO), which is a local utility.

Al Badiya is a subsidiary of Philadelphia Solar, a Jordan-based developer of solar projects that made the single-axis tracking system installed onsite.

Final commissioning of the battery is scheduled for the fourth quarter of the year, according to Al Badiya Company.
