Mott MacDonald re-appointed on Jordan gas project

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by a consortium of lenders - Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation Europe Ltd (SMBC), Japan Bank for International Co-operation (JBIC) and Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) – to act as Independent Engineer during the construction phase of a new gas turbine power plant to be built near Amman, Jordan.

The project will be the first true independent power project in Jordan. It is being introduced to ensure capacity is available to meet Jordan’s future electricity demand as well as helping to ensure security of supply.

The scope of the project includes the design, development, construction, commissioning and operation of a 370MW gas turbine based power plant which will use gas supplied from Egypt. Mott MacDonald’s project team will provide Independent Engineer services during the construction phase which recently began and is due for completion in 2009, reporting on key indicators such as project schedule, environmental performance, health and safety performance as well as adoption of good engineering practices.

Duncan Morrison, Mott MacDonald’s project manager said, “We are delighted to be appointed on this phase of the project. We also acted as Independent Engineer during the pre-Financial Close phase as well as Technical Advisor to the Project Sponsors (a joint venture between AES Oasis and Mitsui & Co) during the bidding phase and we’re really looking forward to seeing the power plant reach successful operation. Mott MacDonald has a wealth of experience in providing technical advisory services on private finance projects and was nominated as Best Technical Advisor in 2007 and it’s important commissions like this one for Jordan that help us to demonstrate our expertise.”
