Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has plans to launch a tender process for the 200 MW CSP plant as part of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum solar park.
It is expected that DEWA will soon select consultants for the CSP project and that it plans to issue the request for proposal (RfP) during the first half of 2017. The project is expected to be operational by 2030.
The 200 MW CSP plant is part of a 1,000 MW concentrated solar power CSP plant, which will be the IV phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.
Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park park using CSP and PV technologies is one of the largest renewable energy projects in the region, with a planned production capacity of 5,000 MW by 2030. DEWA will establish power purchase agreement PPA for the output of the entire facility.
