HananiaJordan’s national collector industry has been benefitting from public-sector offers, as from the one in November 2013, when Jordanian collector manufacturer Hanania Solar Systems won a tender to deliver and install more than 2,000 solar water heaters for low-income households. The project was funded with a budget of USD 1.8 million by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources in cooperation with the Jordan River Foundation. This March, the collector manufacturer announced on its website that it installed 2,137 solar water heaters in the first quarter of 2014. Samer Hanania, Assistant General Manager at Hanania, confirmed that the expected produced collector area of his company would increase by 50 % this year and reach around 70,000 m², according the World Map of Solar Thermal Industry published annually in international magazine Sun & Wind Energy.
