MASE inks O&M Contract for Ministry of Education’s two utility-scale solar PV plants

Amman, Jordan – October 2019: MASE has signed a contract with Jordan’s Ministry of Education (MOE) to operate, maintain and manage the Ministry’s two utility-scale solar PV plants located in Ma’an and Mafraq, each with an installed capacity of 1,000 kW (1 MW).  The plants were developed by the Royal Hashemite Court (RHC) on behalf of the MOE in 2016 and their output is utilized to offset the electricity consumption for a number of schools and MOE offices across Jordan.

The contract was awarded to MASE on the basis of a competitive public tendering process managed by the MOE. As part of the tender evaluation, MASE received the highest technical marks and submitted the most competitive commercial proposal.

MASE’s Commercial O&M Team has been entrusted with managing the plants and will carry out a turnkey scope comprising performance engineering, preventive, corrective and conditional maintenance, in addition to emergency response and corrective maintenance.
