Phase 4 Of Dubai's MBR Solar Park 700MW Registers Progress

2018.09.22     From: utilities-me.com

Phase 4 of the project marks the world's largest investment in a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant, and Dewa's Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer recently toured the project site.


The Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) park is being built in Dubai. It is the fourth phase of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum solar park with a capacity of 700MW


The development progress of Dubai's Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park (MBR Solar Park) 700-megawatt (MW) Phase 4 has been inspected by the managing director and chief executive officer of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa). 


Phase 4 of the project marks the world's largest investment in a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant, and Dewa's Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer recently toured the project site. 


An engineering, procurement, and construction contract for the $3.9bn (AED14.2bn) fourth phase was signed this April between Saudi Arabia-headquartered co-developer ACWA Power, and China-based Shanghai Electric, which is acting as the project’s main contractor.


MBR Solar Park is a critical element of Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, and will have a total capacity of 5,000MW by 2030. Investments in the project are expected to total $13.6bn (AED50bn), and the project will support Dubai's shift towards solar energy. 


Al Tayer was briefed on the project by Abdul Hamid Al Muhaidib, executive managing director of Noor Energy 1, which was launched by Dewa, Acwa Power, and China's Silk Road Fund. 


During his tour of the site, Al Tayer stressed on the need to complete the project in line with the highest health, safety, and quality standards, as well as on time. 


MBR Solar Park is the world's largest single-site facility of its kind to be based on the independent power producer model. Phase 1 of the project, with a photovoltaic (PV) capacity of 13MW, commenced operations in 2013, while its PV Phase 2, with a capacity of 200MW, was launched in March 2017. 


The 800MW Phase 3, also using PV tech, will be operational by 2020, and the first stage of the CSP Phase 4 will be commissioned in Q4 2020, WAM reported.
