Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) has awarded a consultancy deal, to design and supervise the construction of its new Solar Innovation Centre, to Ted Jacob Engineering Group (TJEG).

Ted Jacob Engineering Group will be working alongside Kettle Collective, which will be the lead architect for the project set to be built as part of the new Mohammed Bin Rashid Solar Park. It is set to complete in November 2015.

DEWA has launched the innovation centre, which has been planned as a focal point for companies, researchers, students and other parties interested in solar development, with support from Dubai's Supreme Council for Energy.

DEWA CEO HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said: “The Solar Innovation Centre is a sustainable architecture and a value-adding facility to the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.

"The landmark design celebrates the unique identity of the energy park, reinforcing a sense of green Dubai as a leading example of sustainable development regionally and internationally," he added.

"The building will be a platform to showcase the latest solar and sustainable technologies.”

Tony Kettle, director of Kettle Collective, said: "We are delighted to have been selected for this project, not only because of the competition that we were up against but because of the importance of this building in the future of Dubai."
