Optimising Jordan’s water sectormore
ILF Consulting Engineers has recently been chosen by the Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ) to provide design and consulting services for a number of nationwide energy optimization measures in Jordan’s water sector. The project is a continuation of measures to reduce the energy consumption of water supply networks while at the same time reducing water losses. The costs of water supply will hereby be reduced and quality of life for many people will be improved through the increased water supply security.
The present initiative involves increasing the energy efficiency of the pumping stations by correctly dimensioning and replacing or renewing plant components and supply lines from pumping stations with a pumping capacity between 100 and 500 m³/h.
In addition, there are plans to restructure and renew the water network in the Balqa Governorate supply area, serving an area of approx. 1,100 km² with 80,000 consumers. Priority will be given to the municipality Al-Salt, covering 420 km² and having 32,000 consumers.
