Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) has officially tendered the contract for the next phase of its solar energy programme.
The utility has invited bids to develop 800 MW of solar PV at its Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.
It will be commissioned in phases starting 2018, and DEWA will purchase the power under a long term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

ACWA Power won the contract to develop the first 200MW phase of the solar project earlier this year along with Spanish contractor TSK.
