The second tender, a desalination plant to be constructed and a new well within the Zarqa Free Zone, was issued due to the importance of treating and desalinating the new well that has been drilled since 2014, in order to maintain the continuity of filling the main reservoirs, he added.

The plant will address the shortage of water inside the Zarqa Free Zone, which pumps 3,060 cubic metres of water per week, and is to be implemented within a period that does not exceed five months, he said.

The bid, with a value of JD322,000, provides financial revenues of no less than JD348,000 annually. It will also be completed within the next few months and then the investment process shall begin.

Out of the free zone administration’s keenness to keep pace with the development of storage to preserve the goods belonging to investors and the zone, it issued a bid to rehabilitate and organise the general storage in a comprehensive manner, at a value of JD695,000 within a period that does not exceed five months of the date of purchase order.
