The University of Jordan is soon to develop a 4.6MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) carpark, the largest project of its kind in Jordan.

The project will be implemented at the university by the coalition of Philadelphia Solar company and the Ahmed Badawi Electromechanical Contracting company.

According to the project developer, this solar PV system is considered one of the five largest solar PV carpark projects in the world.

Once in full operation, the system will reduce the University of Jordan Hospital's consumption bill from the current consumption of 12.5GWh per year.

Present at the signing ceremony this week was Prof. Abdulkarim Al-Qudah, president of the University of Jordan; Adnan Badran, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University of Jordan; and Abdulrahman Shehadeh, Chairman of Philadelphia Solar Company, along with a number of industry leaders.
