The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has announced the bid prices of the four consortia selected to develop the 200 MW Phase 4 of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (MBR) Solar Park. The lowest bid submitted for this CSP project was 9.45 c$/kWh (8.47 c€/kWh, based on the exchange rate at the time of writing this article), representing a drop of almost 40% on the lowest global bid price to date. The other three bids submitted prices of between 10.58 c$/kWh and 17.35 c$/kWh (9.48 – 15.55 c€/kWh). Dubai’s record low PV price of 2.99 c$/kWh for the 800 MW Phase 2 of the MBR project demonstrated the potential for cost optimisation under the MBR Programme. As regards the 200 MW CSP tower project, Dubai targeted a cost of 8 c$/kWh

As the first commercial CSP solar tower project in the UAE, this 200 MW CSP tower project in Dubai has caught the attention of global CSP players. With a minimum of eight hours’ storage and expected to come online by 2021, the project forms part of Phase 4 of the MBR Solar Park, with a total installed capacity of 1 GW planned by 2020, and 5 GW by 2030 (including 1 GW of CSP). The project is in line with Dubai’s clean energy strategy to generate 75% of electricity from clean energies by 2050.


The tender for Phase 4 of the solar park corresponding to a CSP plant with tower technology, includes up to 12 hours of energy storage, meaning that the plant will be able to supply electricity throughout the night. It represents the first phase of a development that is expected to offer 1 GW of CSP power using tower technology. Read more..

Senvion, a global manufacturer of wind turbines, has concluded a contract with global wind and solar company Mainstream Renewable Power for the supply and installation of 93 turbines for two wind farm projects in Chile totalling 300 MW. The contracts are currently still under conditions precedent. The Sarco and Aurora wind farms are owned by Aela Energia, the Joint Venture between Actis (60%) and Mainstream Renewable Power (40%). The turbines supplied by Senvion for these two projects will provide clean energy for around 196,000 households in total.

For project Sarco, Senvion will supply 50 Senvion 3.4M114 turbines with a hub height of 93 meters. The wind farm is located in the Atacama region of Northern Chile, around 530 kilometres north of Santiago de Chile. Every turbine has a rated output of 3.4 megawatt and will supply around 2,200 households with electricity. After its planned completion in spring 2017, the wind farm will have a total rated output of 170 MW and supply more than 110.000 households per year with electricity.

For project Aurora, Senvion will supply 43 Senvion 3.0M122 turbines with a hub height of 119 meters. Aurora is located in the Los Lagos region, in the Southern part of Chile and about 850 kilometres south from Santiago and 50km from Puerto Montt. Every turbine has a rated output of 3.0 MW and is able to supply around 2,000 households with electricity. After the planned completion in spring 2017, the wind farm will have a total rated output of 129 MW and supply more than 86,000 households per year with electricity.
