Jordan’s water supply system is very energy intensive and accounts for a share of 15% in the country’s entire power demand. A German-funded program has the aim of raising the energy efficiency of this sector. For example, pumping stations and groundwater extraction were optimized. A focus of these activities was the electro-mechanical equipment of the infrastructure, for example SCADA systems for automatic plant control. Fichtner was responsible for planning and site supervision of the activities. The aim was to cut energy demand to 60 GWh/a.
