Ayla Oasis Development Company Signs A 3.2MW Net Metering Grid Connection Agreement With The Electricity Distribution Company

Aqaba, Jordan

Ayla Oasis Development Company (AODC) and the Electricity Distribution Company (EDCO) signed a 3.2 Megawatt Net Metering Grid Connection Agreement, to power the Seawater Pumping Station that feeds the lagoons in Ayla in Aqaba.

According to Eng. Sahl Dudin, Managing Director of AODC, energy produced from the solar plant will feed the sea water pumping station with a pumping capacity of approximately one million m3 of seawater daily. He added that the lagoons cover an area of around 750 Dunum that added 17 km of new water frontage to Aqaba, which is an increase of up to 52 per cent of Aqaba’s total water frontage.

“This agreement marks the completion of the legal and regulatory phases, encompassing the connection to the grid of the solar power plant stretching over an area of 33 thousand m2 located at the western area of the project,” Dudin said.
Ayla Solar Plant is expected to be operational early next month, as the actual construction has been completed and the testing and commissioning stages are currently underway, in collaboration with international specialists under the supervision of EDCO.

In this respect, Dudin stressed the importance of the cooperation extended by EDCO as well as the Energy and Mineral Resources Commission and their role in supporting renewable energy projects.

“Renewable energy projects in this scale help us achieve a better future for Jordan and will have a positive impact on national investments. AODC is, in fact, a pioneer in addressing one of the most significant national and investment challenges being the energy sector in the Kingdom.”


AODC is also seeking to expand its renewable energy projects through an on-site Power Wheeling Solar Plant with a capacity of 2.6 MW to power the desalination, irrigation and water circulation at the 18-Holes Golf Course currently under construction. With this addition, the total capacity of the two phases will reach up to 5.8 MW, making it one of the largest green renewable energy projects in the region to meet the project internal power requirements.

Dudin also stressed that this energy project will not be the last of its kind for AODC, but rather the beginning of other renewable energy projects inside and outside the allocated project area, adding further developments in this regard will be announced in due course.

Following the signing ceremony, a brief presentation on the Ayla project was made by Eng. Dudin, in the presence of Eng. Hassan Thneibat, General Manager of EDCO, his assistants and the directors of concerned departments.

Echoing the importance of the agreement in easing the energy challenges in Jordan, Eng. Thneibat said that “Signing the agreement today confirms EDCO’s role in supervising and regulating all national electricity connection lines. Our hope is to best ensure safety and sustainable services for all.”
