dbo:abstract
  • Attarat Power Plant is a planned oil shale-fueled power plant in the Attarat Um Ghudran area in Jordan. The concession agreement between the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and National Electricity Power Company of Jordan, and Estonian power company Eesti Energia (Enefit) was signed on 30 April 2008. The project is developed by Enefit Jordan B.V., a partnership between Eesti Energia, YTL Power International and Near East Investments of Jordan, and will be operated by Attarat Power Company, a daughter company of Enefit Jordan. The power plant will have a total capacity of 470 MW. It will consist of two circulating-fluidized-bed units. The engineering, procurement and construction contract was awarded to Guangdong Power Engineering Corporation, a subsidiary of China Energy Engineering Group. The power plant would be designed by WorleyParsons. It would use boilers provided by Foster Wheeler and the turbine by Siemens. The project will be cost US$1.6 billion and will be financed by $1.4 billion loan provided by the Bank of China and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, and guaranteed by China Export and Credit Insurance Corporation. A 30-year power purchase agreement was signed with Jordan in October 2014. The construction agreement was signed on 12 January 2016. The plant is expected to start operation in the second half of 2019. When constructed, it will be among the largest power plants in Jordan (the largest being Aqaba Thermal Power Station), and the largest oil shale-fired power plant in the world after Narva Power Plants in Estonia. The power plant would consume 10 million tons of oil shale per year. Over its 40-year lifetime it would need an oil-shale mining area of approximately 11 square kilometres (4.2 sq mi). (en)
