Dubai Tender 200 MW CSP

CSP Concentrated Solar Power

Renewable energy is the power of the future and solar power just got a huge boost with new research that could see concentrated solar power (CSP) become much more efficient.

Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) announced a fresh tender for the iconic Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park just days after Dubai announced long-term renewable energy targets.

Media outlets recently reported that DEWA launched a 200 megawatt tender for a concentrated solar power project at the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. This is the first time concentrated solar power technology will come up at the solar power park.

1 gigawatt

The 200 megawatt project is set to be commissioned by April 2021 and will add to the more than 1 gigawatt of solar photovoltaic power capacity, almost all of which is currently under development at the solar power park.

An additional 800 megawatts of CSP capacity will be added to the solar power park, taking the total CSP installed capacity to 1,000 megawatts by 2030.

Strategy 2050 plan

Under the recently announced Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 plan, Dubai targets 44% energy from renewable energy sources, 38% from gas, 12% from ‘clean fuels’ and 6% from nuclear energy. Almost $17 billion will be invested to expand the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.

The solar power park will now be increased to a capacity of 5 gigawatts. The initial planned capacity was 1 gigawatt which was subsequently increased to 3 gigawatts, and now 5 gigawatts. Bids of the first 1 gigawatt of capacity have already been awarded.

Under the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy, the Emirate aims to achieve a 7% share of clean energy sources in the total energy mix, which is scheduled to be increased to 25% by 2030 and 75% by 2050.
