Amit Jain, Global CEO, Sterling and Wilson Solar Group said, “We are delighted to announce the commissioning of the Al Husainiyah project in Jordan amid such difficult times.

However, we arranged priority deliveries for material from OEMs, enabled remote monitoring, hired a local team, and provided the necessary training to them, to deliver the project as per the agreed timelines.”

"This is our third project in the country, and we are proud to be a contributing player in the Government of Jordan’s mission of switching to renewable energy. These projects are critical for Jordan’s economic growth by reducing its reliance on costly hydrocarbon imports for power generation”, he further added.
