OVERVIEW

The 700 MW CSP fourth phase of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, is the largest single-site concentrated solar power plant in the world using a state-of-the-art combination of a central tower and parabolic trough concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies to collect energy from the sun. The project, which was awarded to an ACWA Power led consortium in 2017, will deliver electricity at a levelised tariff of US $7.30 cents per kilowatt-hour; a cost level that competes with fossil fuel generated electricity without subsidy for reliable and dispatchable solar energy through the night. The plant will support the Dubai Clean Energy strategy 2050 to increase the share of clean energy at Dubai to 25% by 2030, and will allow a saving of 2.4 Million tons of CO2.
