The project's scope of work involves 700-megawatt (MW) concentrated solar power (CSP) plant located at Seih Al Dahal, on the Dubai - Al Ain road, Dubai.
The new plant will deliver energy at 7.3 US cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh). The project featuring world’s tallest solar tower at 260 metres, and the world’s largest thermal energy storage capacity, which will provide clean energy to more than 270,000 residences in Dubai.
The project will use two technologies for the production of clean energy – 600MW parabolic basin complex and 100MW from the solar tower.
The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is the biggest single-site solar park in the world that is based on the IPP model. It will generate 1,000MW by 2020 and 5,000MW by 2030. The 13MW photovoltaic first phase became operational in 2013. The 200MW photovoltaic second phase of the solar park was launched in March 2017. The 800MW photovoltaic third phase will be operational by 2020, and the 700MW CSP fourth phase will be operational by 2021.
