Noor Energy 1 Solar Project
Noor Energy 1 Solar Project Overview
The Noor Energy 1 Solar Project is a 950MW hybrid concentrated solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) solar power station to be developed as part of the fourth phase development of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, Dubai, UAE. The $3.9bn ambitious project encompasses 700MW from CSP technologies and 250MW of PV power generation and is the world’s biggest single-site CSP plant.
ACWA Power, a power generation company based in Saudi Arabia, is developing the project in partnership with Shanghai Electric Group Company (SEGC), the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), and Abengoa, a Spanish company. Expected to be fully operational by the end of 2020, the Noor Energy 1 solar power complex will contribute to the “Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050”, which aims to achieve 75% of Dubai’s power generation from clean energy sources by 2050 and increase the share of clean energy at Dubai to 25% by 2030, and will allow a saving of 1.6 Million tons of CO2.
Brunel was awarded the contract to provide team of construction supervisors, HSE, QA/QC, discipline engineers and supervisors with both CSP and PV experience.
