Japan's Jica will upgrade Jordan's Zay water station.

The Water Authority of Jordan along with Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica) will together redevelop the Zay purification station under a $20m agreement, with work on the project scheduled to begin in 2020.

A Jordan Times report stated that the project will boost water flow from King Abdullah Canal in the Jordan Valley to the Zay station, which has been supplying enough water to meet 40% of Amman’s water needs every year. 

According to the secretary general of Water Authority of Jordan, Eyad Dhayyat, the upgradation project will result in energy savings for the country.

Jica is actively involved in Middle East construction, and in June 2019, signed a loan agreement in Baghdad with the Government of Iraq to provide the an official development assistance loan of $1.01bn for its Basra Refinery Upgrading Project II in Iraq.
