MENA Geothermal Awarded Contract to Repair and Complete Installation of Geothermal System in Jordan
Jan 29, 2012

Ramallah: MENA Geothermal, a leading Palestinian company that specializes in the design and installation of geothermal heating and cooling systems, has been awarded the contract to evaluate, repair, and complete the design and installation of a geothermal system at one of the largest villas in Dabouq, Jordan.

MENA Geothermal’s extensive experience in the design and installation of efficient, economical, and reliable geothermal systems, combined with its dedicated team of highly qualified and certified engineers led to the awarding of the contract.

“Being asked to fix another contractor’s attempt at installing a geothermal system affirms that MENA Geothermal is the only certified and credible geothermal company in the entire region. It also affirms the importance of MENA Geothermal"s high ethical standards and the quality of its engineering practices and experience.” said Khaled Al Sabawi, President and Founder of MENA Geothermal and General Manager of Union Construction and Investment (UCI).

When asked to comment on the subject, Mr. Ted Kantrowitz, Vice-President of the Canadian GeoExchange Coalition (CGC), an organization that monitors the quality of the design and installation of geothermal heating and cooling systems in Canada, stated: “the quality of installation as well as the quality of design were particular problems for the North American industry over 1975 – 2005, and to some degree persist.  Quality of work of course has a huge effect on the customer’s psychology, and so quality assurance and industry self-monitoring were major issues”.

Mr. Kantrowitz added: “In the end, the geothermal decision is like any purchase decision: it requires customers to verify the competence and track record of those they hire, and to protect themselves as much as practical.  By hiring engineers, dealing with CGC Certified companies here in Canada, and insisting on CGC Certified systems, we help customers, insurance companies, and even governments manage risk and cope with any contractor issue if and when they arise”.

MENA Geothermal was established in 2008 by its current President, Khaled Al Sabawi, to offer energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost effective heating and cooling systems to customers in the Middle East and North Africa region. During the same year, MENA Geothermal was awarded the Energy Globe Award, the world’s most prominent and prestigious environmental prize, for its geothermal heating and cooling system at the UCI Headquarters Building in Ramallah, Palestine. 

MENA Geothermal’s engineers are graduates from the world’s most accredited engineering programs including the University of Waterloo in Canada and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States. Moreover, MENA’s engineers are the only engineers in the region that are certified as Commercial Geothermal Designers by the Canadian GeoExchange Coalition (CGC), and as Accredited Installers by the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA).

Recently, MENA Geothermal concluded the installation of the largest geothermal heating and cooling system in the Middle East and North Africa, a 1.6 MW system, at the American University of Madaba in Jordan. MENA Geothermal is dedicated to advancing geothermal technology in the MENA region and especially in Palestine as it is highly dependent on the Israeli Occupation for energy supply.

In December 2012, “Arabia 500” selected MENA Geothermal as one of the 500 fastest-growing companies in the Middle East and North Africa region including Turkey and Pakistan.
