ABB to build substation that will integrate solar power from Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park to electricity grid. Swiss-based ABB has won an order worth more than $90 million from Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to build a substation that will integrate solar power from upcoming phases [...]
Congratulations to the UAE and Dubai for a great leap forward to provide clean solar energy for development and save hydrocarbon resources for exports. Dubai in a couple of years will not only have the next tallest building in the world but also the world’s largest concentrated solar power [...]
The UAE is getting used to setting solar energy records. Dubai’s latest project, awarded last Saturday, follows this pattern. But, as a leap forward in a different type of solar power plant, it has important implications for renewable energy across the region. A joint venture of Saudi Arabia’s Acwa, already [...]
The UAE’s solar energy sector is witnessing steady growth and is expected to account for almost 8 percent of total power capacity by 2026, according to new research. On September 16, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) announced it had awarded the development of 700MW (megawatt) of concentrated solar power [...]
The giant 700 MW project in Dubai will combine tower and trough technologies and use scale and local infrastructure synergies to set a new benchmark price of $73/MWh for CSP with storage, Andrea Lovato, ACWA Power's Executive Director of Business Development, told New Energy Update. ACWA Power will use learnings [...]
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) awarded the 700MW parabolic trough concentrated solar power (CSP) fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in a Saudi Arabia- China consortium with a record bid of $7.3 cents per KWh. The project is considered the largest concentrated solar [...]
ACWA Power awarded 700 MW CSP fourth phase of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park at a levelised tariff of US $7.30 cents per kilowatt hour; a cost level that competes with fossil fuel generated electricity without subsidy for reliable and dispatchable solar energy through the night. By [...]
Puerto Errado 2 (PE2), the 30MW solar thermal power station built by Novatec Solar using its proprietary solar field technology, has been completed and is in operation.
The world's largest Linear-Fresnel Solar Power Station with 302,000 m2 reflecting surface and 30 MW output opens up a new chapter in the history of solar energy.
Oliver Mundle said: “I am very excited to join a leading technology provider in the Concentrated Solar Power industry and to work with Novatec’s team of highly experienced people.”
ABB has launched what it is calling a new concept for turnkey concentrating solar power plants based on a 'low-cost, efficient and highly scalable technology that uses considerably less material, land and water.
Our cooperation with Novatec Solar is as technology partner for Concentrating Solar Power plants since first quarter of 2011.
During CSP Today’s ‘Myth-busting Webinar’ for 1000 members of the Concentrating Solar Thermal Power community, over 50 questions were posed in the interactive session from developers, EPCs and suppliers.
