7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Mas­dar will de­liver the third phase of the Mo­hammed Bin Rashid al Mak­toum So­lar Park, the Dubai Electricity and Wa­ter Au­thor­ity an­nounced yes­ter­day. The Abu Dhabi clean en­ergy firm will lead a con­sor­tium along­side Span­ish companies FRV (Fo­towa­tio Re­new­able Ven­tures) and Gran­so­lar Group to build the 800MW ex­ten­sion to the desert so­lar park, that aims to be op­er­a­tional by 2020. The con­sor­tium sub­mit­ted the low­est bid in the Septem­ber 2015 bid­ding process, of­fer­ing to build the 800 MW so­lar plant ex­ten­sion for $2.99 per kilo­watt hour, break­ing world records for so­lar gen­er­a­tion costs. “This is a new phase of our econ­omy that is based on en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity and clean en­ergy to make Dubai the city with the low­est carbon foot­print in the world,” Saeed Mo­hammed Al Tayer, the MD of DEWA said. The sec­ond phase of the project is a 200 MW pho­to­voltaic plant to be com­pleted by April 2017.
