Background

The Ministry of Water & Irrigation is responsible for Jordan’s scarce water resources, playing a vital role in the management collection, allocation and distribution of the country’s water. Over the past years, in an effort to further develop its capacity to do this, the ministry has cooperated with various international donors and consultants on a number of successful projects.

Background

Following the impressive success of the micro-PSP implemented to increase the efficiency of water administration in Madaba, the Government of Jordan has decided to replicate this project within other administration units of the Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ).

The Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ) operates pumping stations across the country for the distribution of water. However, it is considered the biggest energy consumer in Jordan, leaving much scope for looking into the efficiency of the current system in order to reduce energy consumption. To mitigate the costs of water distribution, a project was initiated in 2010 to study the potential for saving energy at pumping stations in Jordan.

This two-year project for the Water Authority of Jordan started in November 2008. Engicon O&M was part of a consortium with Dorsch and Consulaqua.

The project’s scope of works required 10 tasks mainly related to water management improvement. The general objective was to enhance the quality of service, increase revenues and reduce water loss in a 20,000 subscriber-base pilot area in the city of Zarqa.

Engicon O&M worked on this project with Dorsch for the Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ) in the Zarqa Governorate. The project started in November 2007 and was completed in January 2010.The survey covered all water (140,000) and sewerage (90,000) subscribers.

On this project for the Water Authority of Jordan Engicon O&M has worked with the consortium of Dorsch and Seba KMT. This project, started in July 2007 and completed in September 2009, focused on reducing Real Water Losses. The work was accomplished through realizing improved maintenance and repair management and pressure modulation.

The project was for the pilot area of the Prince Ali Block in the Ain Al Basha district. The area was selected for this project because it is supplied by one source (a reservoir in Safout area) and its customer base of 1,500 is a manageable size.
