The contractor, which DEWA's Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer declined to identify, bid 1.7 cents per kilowatt-hour for the photovoltaic plant
In February, Kuwait started commercial operations at its 50 MW Shagaya CSP plant, marking the completion of phase 1 of the Shagaya renewable energy park
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), last month, inspected the 4th phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.
73% of the construction of the solar tower has been completed, including the completion of the main structure and installation of heliostats
This phase of the project will integrate 700MW of CSP; 600MW from a parabolic basin complex and 100MW from a solar tower; and 250MW from photovoltaic solar panels
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.
