ACWA Power International Key Developments

ACWA Power International Wins 200-Mw Solar Project in Dubai

ACWA Power International has won a tender to build a 200-MW solar park in Dubai, the second phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum solar project. The Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) announced it has selected the tie-up, as the preferred bidder for the photovoltaic (PV) project. ACWA Power bid an unprecedented USD 0.0598625 (EUR 0.0509) per kWh as part of the tender. The project was planned to be of 100 MW, but the very low power price bid motivated DEWA to double the targeted capacity. DEWA noted that it will work with the consortium to achieve financial close next month. The whole Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum solar complex will total 1 GW. The first phase of the project, with a capacity of 13 MW, was completed by First Solar Inc. in October 2014. Phase II will become operational by April 2017, while the whole complex is expected to be up and running in 2030.
