Abu Dhabi eyes second solar plant

ABU DHABI, January 15, 2018

Abu Dhabi is planning to build another solar power plant in the capital in addition to its $870-million plant at Sweihan, which is poised to become the world’s largest solar project, said a report.

The new facility is expected to commence operations by the middle of next year, reported Gulf News, citing a senior official from Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (Adwea).

"We are studying this project and there will be an announcement this year. It will be bigger than the current solar project which is under construction in Sweihan," said Adel Al Saeedi, the acting director of privatisation at Adwea.

It will be a joint collaborative project between Adwea and private companies to meet the growing energy demand, he added.
