MENA Geothermal signs Jordanian villas deal
Company breaks new ground with Fuheis contract for three properties
MENA Geothermal Jordan has signed an agreement to install a geothermal system for three villas in Al Humar area in Fuheis, Jordan.
The geothermal heating and cooling systems company will be responsible for installing a heating and cooling geothermal system for the adjacent villas by creating a joint closed-loop pipe serving each of the properties, with a cooling capacity of 66 tonnes and a heating capacity of 70 tonnes.
The agreement was signed by company representative in Jordan and the three villa owners, in the company office in Amman.
Commenting on the award, Khaled Al Sabawi, founder and president of MENA Geothermal, said: “Signing this agreement is considered a crucial accomplishment in Jordan on both environmental and economic levels. This falls under the company’s main strategic goal to implement geothermal technology not only in Jordan, but in all other countries in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA).”
He added that with Jordan suffering from a deficiency in energy supply and energy prices remaining high, geothermal is a more environmentally-friendly and economically feasible alternative to imported fossil fuels. Consequently, MENA Geothermal is expecting larger demand for geothermal energy in the near future.
“This geothermal system which will be installed in three villas in Jordan, will decrease carbon dioxide emissions by 166,807 kg per year, compared to conventional systems. Additionally, this system does not require maintenance, and decreases heating and cooling expenses by up to 70%,” said Al Sabawi.
MENA Geothermal established its branch in Jordan in late 2012, where it recently completed the design and installation of a geothermal system in the American University in Madaba – the largest of its kind in the entire MENA region, according to the company. It has also signed an agreement to repair and complete the installation of a geothermal system for a large villa in Dabouk, Amman.
The company has also completed projects in Palestine and has signed an agreement to provide consultancy services for two large geothermal projects in India.
