JPMC are Jordan’s largest exporter. Solar Water Plc has enjoyed powerful support from the British Embassy and local branch of the UK Department of International Trade in Amman, which held a ceremony on 4th February to celebrate one of the largest UK technology exports in recent years.
The British Ambassador to Jordan, Edward Oakden said: “ Ground-breaking science, high technology, environmentally friendly, meeting a real business need. What more could we ask from this latest UK-Jordan business deal, signed this morning, within a few working hours of Britain’s exit from the European Union? Today’s agreement, between the UK’s Solar Water PLC and Jordan’s largest exporter, the Jordanian Phosphate Mining Company, involves ground breaking technology of potentially wide application throughout the region to combat climate change.”
Solar Water Plc’s CEO, David Reavley said: “We are proud of our Jordanian partnership with JPMC, Jordan’s largest exporter. This is sustainability in action, solving freshwater needs through our uniquely carbon neutral technology. We are committed to solving some of the freshwater shortages answering the global call for zero carbon neutral solutions in the provision of freshwater. We look forward to further involvement with Jordan and its people.”
