Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has floated a tender for engineering consultancy services for the $3.2bn Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.
The first project of the park will witness the production of power using photovoltaic cell technology, with a production capacity of 10MW by 2013. By 2030, the park will produce 1,000MW on the completion of all its phases.
Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030 has included a plan for diversifying the energy sources in Dubai so that solar energy contributes 1% to the overall energy production for Dubai by 2020 and this will increase to 5% by 2030. This is in addition to generating 12% from nuclear power and 12% from clean coal. The remainder will come from gas.
DEWA is seeking consultants to work on a 400/132 KV substation and associated 400 KV OHL works. The deadline for tenders is 11am on Sunday, 3 November, 2013.
