The article reports on the partnership between thin-film module maker Amelio Solar and a Jordanian investment group to build a 1 gigawatt solar power generation plant in Jordan, including a 200 megawatt (MW) solar module factory. The generation plant is scheduled to reach total power capacity by 2017. The thin-film module factory will reach full capacity in three years, beginning with a 22 MW manufacturing line in 2009. The solar modules produced at the factory will be used primarily for the power generation plant.
