Vestas and EP Global Energy join forces to provide wind energy solutions in Jordan and other Middle Eastern countries

As part of the Wind for Prosperity program, Vestas and EP Global Energy signed a Memorandum of Understanding today on bringing wind energy solutions to remote communities in the Middle East.

With today’s agreement, Jordan is set to become the first country in the Middle East and the second country globally to host a Wind for Prosperity project.  Facing severe energy challenges owing to rising local consumption and limited domestic fossil fuel resources, Jordan and its energy consumers will benefit from increasing the supply of reliable, affordable, and locally produced electricity.

Under the MOU, Vestas and EP Global Energy will collaborate to deploy wind energy solutions to help improve access to electricity for communities that currently have no or only limited energy infrastructure.  The first project under the MOU is expected to be commissioned in Jordan before the end of 2014 and will utilize the Wind for Prosperity hybrid solution to bring electricity to more than 100.000 people.

According to Efthyvoulos Paraskevaides, chairman of EP Global Energy, "The Wind for Prosperity initiative is a cost-effective and robust way to provide electricity from non-polluting renewable sources to those communities that need it most. We look forward to working with Vestas to bring this project to fruition.”

Morten Albæk, Vestas Group Senior Vice President & CMO, concludes, “This agreement is an important milestone – for Wind for Prosperity, the Middle East region, and especially for Jordan. Our partnership with EP Global Energy is gratifying example of complementary strengths advancing shared goals.  Partnering with EP Global Energy will allow Wind for Prosperity to scale up and travel to new countries to the benefit of those living in energy poverty.”

The Memorandum of Understanding signed today further solidifies the collaboration between Vestas and EP Global Energy, building on the 117 MW Al Tafila project in Jordan, announced in December 2013.
