Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), inspected the progress of the construction of the fourth phase of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the world's largest concentrated solar energy investment project, in a single location, in line with the independent product system. With a total investment of AED 15.78 billion, the construction phase of the Concentrated Solar Tower has reached more than 30% and reached a height of more than 50 meters.
The construction of the thermal, condensed salt and steam turbine reservoirs was completed as part of the construction of the fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.The project features the highest solar tower in the world, up to 260 meters, and the largest solar storage capacity Worldwide for 15 hours, allowing 24-hour power availability. This phase will provide clean energy to 320,000 homes and contribute to the reduction of 1.6 million tons of carbon emissions annually, said CEO of Noor Energy Abdul Hamid Al Muhaidib, confirmed that the completion of the construction phase of the concentrated solar tower reached more than 30%, where the rise The tower is more than 50 meters long, and the structural foundations of the thermal, condensed salt and steam turbine tanks have been completed. In addition, the production line of the convex solar mirror assembly and installation plant was inaugurated on site. The project is looking for more than 63,000 convex solar mirrors that follow the movement of the sun, with a completion rate of 16%.
The fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is the largest single-site investment project in the world, combining concentrated solar and photovoltaic technologies with a stand-alone product system of up to 950 MW. This phase will rely on 700 MW CSP, using a 600 MW parabolic reflector system, 100 MW CSP tower technology, and 250 MW PV.
