Dewa to tender third phase of solar park in six weeks

DUBAI, February 8, 2016

The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) will launch a tender to build the third phase of the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in six weeks, its chief executive said on Monday.

"Within a short period, we will open the tender," Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer told Reuters on the sidelines of a conference. "The award of this contract will be this year, according to the programme, in June - 800 megawatts will be awarded."

Dewa said in September it would start accepting expressions of interest for the plant. Tayer did not give a figure for the cost of the project.

Dubai doubled the capacity of the second phase of the solar park from 100 MW to 200 MW after receiving the lowest-ever recorded cost for solar power in a tender won by Saudi Arabia's ACWA Power and Spain's TSK. - Reuters
