Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA, said: “The 900MW fifth phase of the solar park using the IPP model adds to our successful solar power and clean energy projects that use the best global technologies to generate electricity from clean energy sources. The fifth phase will be implemented by Shuaa Energy 3, established by DEWA and the consortium led by ACWA Power and the Gulf Investment Corporation. DEWA received the lowest global bid of 1.6953 cents per kWh for this project, which will use the latest solar photovoltaic bifacial technologies, with Single Axis Tracking to increase generation.”

Commissioning will take place in stages beginning from the third quarter of next year.
