Ayla Oasis Development Company (AODC) has signed a Power Wheeling agreement with the Electricity Distribution Company (EDCO) to provide renewable energy to cover the consumption of its various components in Aqaba.


Under the agreement, electricity will be generated by a 2.6MW photovoltaic plant to power the desalination and operational requirements for the Ayla Golf course, a world-class golf course Designed by Golf Hall-of-Famer Greg Norman, it is the first 18-hole green in Jordan as well as one of the top three eco-friendly golf courses in the world and poised to attract major international tournaments. The generated power will also cover other operational requirements throughout the master-planned Ayla Project.


At the signing ceremony, Engineer Sahl Dudin, Managing Director of AODC, presented a brief overview of the company’s projects to Engineer Hassan Thunaibat, General Manager of EDCO.


On this occasion, Engineer Dudin said: “This agreement will ensure adequate power supply from renewable sources for a number of special services run on the golf course, such as desalination of water used for irrigation with capacity to desalinate about 3,000 cubic meters per day, distribution of water across the premises, as well as pumping of desalinated water into the water features, golf academy and maintenance facilities.

 

The energy generated will also power other units operating inside the 1,200 acre course that aims to become Jordan’s first golf course built in line with international specifications, in addition to the adjacent facilities and services including the District Cooling Plant of the Marina Village.”
