The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has introduced the Noor Energy 1 Visitors Center as a feature of the fourth phase of the mega Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.
The visitors centre includes an exhibition that annals the historical backdrop of energy and future energy advancements. It shows the most recent innovations in concentrated solar power (CSP), photovoltaic cells, and the fate of green hydrogen.
It additionally utilizes virtual reality (VR) to empower visitors to visit the solar stop and comprehend the undertakings and advancements being utilized to deliver energy.
In general, the 950-megawatt (MW) fourth phase of the recreation center has ventures totalling Dhs15.78bn dependent on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model.
It will utilize 700MW of CSP (600MW from an illustrative basin complex and 100MW from the solar power tower) and 250MW from photovoltaic solar panels.
A consortium led by DEWA and ACWA Power shaped a venture organization, Noor Energy 1, to configuration, construct, and work the plant. DEWA claims 51% of the organization, while ACWA Power holds 25%, and the Silk Road Fund possesses 24%.
“When completely functional, Noor Energy 1 will be the biggest single-site concentrated solar power plant on the planet,” said Mohammad Abunayyan, chairman of ACWA Power.
“This experience place will permit visitors to comprehend and observe this one of a kind task from a mechanical and arrangements point of view.”
When finished, the task will have the biggest thermal storage limit in the realm of 15 hours, taking into consideration energy accessibility nonstop.
Also, it will give clean energy to around 320,000 homes and decrease 1.6 million tons of fossil fuel byproducts consistently.
“DEWA’s tasks at the solar park utilizing the IPP model establish one of the critical mainstays of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Emissions Strategy 2050 to give 100% of energy from clean energy sources by 2050,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.
The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is additionally the biggest single-site solar park on the planet. With an arranged complete limit of 5,000MW by 2030, it includes a speculation of Dhs50bn.
The complete limit of functional ventures at the solar park, which utilizes photovoltaic solar panels, is 1,013MW. DEWA is making an extra limit of 1,850MW utilizing solar panels and CSP.
