Powering the construction industry with clean, renewable energy
The agreement signed between Lafarge Cement Jordan and Adenium Energy Capital includes the setting up of a solar power plant. This project is the first of its kind in the region. It helps the country of Jordan to make the shift to alternative energy - a shift that is also in line with the national Jordan strategy for renewable energy launched by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources in 2015.
“This agreement shows what positive role the industry can play in using alternative and renewable resources,” says Mr. Amr Reda, CEO Lafarge Jordan. “Not only does it support us to decrease CO2 emission in our production process, but it also lowers our electricity cost and creates job opportunities.”
Wassef Sawaf CEO of Adenium Energy Capital added, “It fills us with pride to play an important role in Jordan to advance the use of alternative energy. We are very pleased that Lafarge Jordan decided to be part of this journey.”
Adenium will start with the construction of the solar power plant beginning of this year. The solar power plant is expected to run in July 2017.
