The world’s biggest tri-fuel power plant, designed to protect power supply against fuel shortages.

  • Amman Asia Electric Power Company (AAEPC) was a consortium created to develop, own and operate a 573MW reciprocating engine power plant in Amman, Jordan. The independent power project was awarded through a tender process initiated by the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources of Jordan and the National Electric Power Company of Jordan.
  • As Jordan has limited natural resources and relies heavily on imported fossil fuels for power generation, a reciprocating engine tri-fuel power plant provided the best solution. Located 30km from the capital, Amman, the biggest tri-fuel power plant on the planet has an installed capacity of 573MW and is designed to use natural gas and heavy fuel oil (HFO) as its main fuels and light fuel oil (HFO) as the back-up fuel, to protect power supply against the risk of fuel shortage.
