Project developers eager to set up solar photovoltaic power projects in Jordan took a shot at the lowest-ever tariff in the second round tender under the country’s solar power program, and SunRise PV Systems of Greece came out on top, Cleantechnica.com portal reports.

Jordan allocated 200 MW of projects in the second round auction after a total of 33 companies had submitted technical proposals. However, only 24 eventually submitted financial bids.

Four developers submitting the lowest bids are selected to develop 50 MW capacity each. The lowest tariff bid, 6.13 U. S. dollar cents (5.57 euro cents) per kWh, has been submitted by SunRise PV Systems. Its project is located near Al Mafraq, about 90 kilometers north of Amman.

Sunrise Photovoltaic Systems, founded in 2006, has been active in the Greek solar power market developing a number of projects, but not yet as large as 50 MW. According to the company’s website, the largest it has developed so far has a 3 MW installed capacity.

The other three bids were placed by construction company Saudi Oger, Spanish developer Fotowatio Solar Renewable, and a subsidiary of the Chinese project developer Hareon Solar.

Hareon Swiss Holding placed a bid of 7.97 U. S. dollar cents per kWh.
