Construction of Dubai’s Largest Solar Park Goes into Fourth Phase

The fourth phase of the Park is the largest single-site investment project in Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) in the world based on the IPP mode.

The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority has said that construction work on the fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park has advanced further with the completion of 128 pillars of the project’s solar tower.

This is part of DEWA’s continuous efforts to accelerate Dubai’s transformation into a global clean and renewable energy hub and its shift towards solar energy.

The fourth phase of the Park is the largest single-site investment project in Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) in the world based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model.

HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA announced the latest updates on the progress of the project during a visit to review the construction work on the Park, one of the world’s largest single-site solar parks. Featuring a total investment of AED 50 million, the Park will reach a total capacity of 5,000 MW by 2030.

Al Tayer was briefed on the progress of construction work by Abdul Hamid Al Muhaidib, Executive Managing Director of Noor Energy 1, a venture formed through a partnership between DEWA, Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power and China’s Silk Road Fund to build the fourth phase of the Park.

The fourth phase of the solar Park will use three technologies to produce 950MW of clean energy, 600MW from a parabolic basin complex, 100MW from a solar tower, and 250MW will be generated from photovoltaic panels.

Al Tayer stressed the need to ensure the highest standards of health, safety, and quality in the project.

This project has already achieved many world records. It will have the world’s tallest solar tower, at 260 metres, and the largest thermal energy storage capacity in the world of 15 hours, which allows for energy generation round the clock.
