Select Projects

Clean Energy and Utilities

Tafila Wind Farm

The 117MW Tafila Wind Project is connected to Jordan’s national grid and accounts for 12% of the Kingdom’s total operating renewable energy generation. The wind facility generates around 350GWh of clean energy annually, enough to power 83,000 homes in the region. This offsets approximately 235,000t of carbon emissions annually. It is the first commercial utility-scale wind power project in the Middle East, and the largest privately-financed wind farm in Jordan.

Wastewater treatment plants in Madinah, Buraydah and Tabuk

A consortium of Ruwada Al Istithmar, Acciona Aqua, and Tawzea have successfully signed 25-year sewage treatment agreements with Saudi Water Partnerships Company (SWPC) to develop 3 new wastewater treatment projects and associated pipeline infrastructure in the cities of Madinah, Buraydah and Tabuk in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. These projects will be financed by a combination of equity and project financing raised by a consortium of international and local commercial banks. Once completed, these 3 projects will be able to receive, treat and deliver up to 440,000m3/day of sewage, producing treated sewage effluent which can be used by the municipalities for irrigation and landscaping. The design of these wastewater treatment facilities takes into account sustainable operations and maintenance as well as the Kingdom’s goal to maximise the used of renewed water from treatment plants for the Saudi Irrigation Organization (SIO). Abdulrahman Bin Abdulmohsen Al-Fadhli, Minister of Environment, Water and Agriculture, tweeted that the plants were being built “within the framework of the initiatives of the Privatization Program, one of the programs of Vision 2030, and in partnership with the private sector”.
