About Solar O&M and Asset Management MENA

The inaugural Solar O&M and Asset Management MENA conference was successfully held at the Sheraton Amman Al Nabil, Jordan.  O&M and asset management is a rising requirement in the region as solar project owners across the region are increasingly looking at extending the lifecycle and performance of utility sized solar plants upon the final stages of construction. In addition, the event also discussed Jordan’s upcoming tenders of solar projects upon its expansion of its energy grid in 2018.

Over 80 attendees gather across the two days to discuss Jordan’s upcoming commercial and utility sized solar projects as well as the latest developments on its green corridor project. They also discussed upcoming O&M and asset management requirements and the findings from case studies on the implementation of the latest technologies suitable for the region’s climate to improve performance and ROI.

The 2nd Solar O&M and Asset Management MENA conference will provide an update on Jordan’s third round of tenders, O&M and asset management strategies, systems and technologies to ensure long-term performance and profitability of solar plants across MENA

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
