German firm installs CSP system at Jordan factory
Fresnel collectors will supply 223 kWh of power to pharmaceutical company.
Germany’s Industrial Solar has installed concentrating solar power (CSP) system on the factory roof of RAM Pharma (RAM) in Sahab, Jordan to provide steam for the pharmaceutical production process and cut energy costs and CO2 emissions.
The system is comprised of 18 Industrial Solar LF-11 fresnel collectors with a total aperture area of 396 m2 and a peak capacity of 223 kWh.
It was commissioned in March 2015 and was officially inaugurated by Jordan’s Minister of Environment Dr. Taher Shakhshir on May 7, 2015.
It was realized within a project between Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and ISG to support the market development for solar process heat in Jordan.
The development partnership with the Industrial Solar is part of the develoPPP.de programme that Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) implements on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
Through the develoPPP.de programme, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) provides companies investing in developing and emerging countries with financial and, if required, also professional support. The company is responsible for covering at least half of the overall costs.
