Dubai Solar Park Adds 200 MW of Solar Power Generation
The project reflects a new era in the excellence and leadership of the UAE, as it increases the share of clean and renewable energy.
This phase of the solar park is the first and largest solar-energy project in the region, based on the Independent Power Producer model.
This phase can generate clean energy for 50,000 residences in Dubai, and will reduce 214,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
This phase installed 2.3 million photovoltaic solar panels over 4.5 square kilometres with 1.5 million Safe Man Hours without Lost Time Injury during project execution.
The efforts of Shuaa Energy 1, which was established by DEWA and the consortium led by ACWA Power and TSK, have been vital in completing the work efficiently and professionally.
«The UAE’s interest in producing renewable energy has contributed to the decline of its global cost to competitive levels.
DEWA set another world record with the lowest recorded bid being USD 2.99 cents per kW/h for the 800 megawatt third phase of the solar park.
