UAE – Mubasher: The third phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park (MBR Solar Park) in Dubai is set to be operational in April 2020, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) said on Saturday, according to the Emirates News Agency.

DEWA is building the 800-megawatt photovoltaic third phase of the solar park in three stages, in partnership with a consortium led by Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) and EDF Energies Nouvelles, a subsidiary of France’s EDF Group.

Upon completion, the MBR Solar Park will be the largest single-site solar park in the world, with a capacity of 5,000 megawatts and investments of AED 50 billion.

The current operational projects in the solar park have a capacity of 713 megawatts.

The MBR Solar Park is set to be fully operational by 2030 and will help achieve the objectives of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050.
