DEWA wants to build a 1-GW CSP park by 2030 at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. On May 26 it launched a tender to select the consultants for the 200-MW first phase of the CSP project. The closing date for proposal was July 20.

The phase I solar thermal power project is to be operational by April 2021. A senior official told Zawya Projects in June that the independent power producer (IPP) tender for the 200-MW park is expected in the first half of 2017.
