Shanghai Electric will be the EPC contractor for Phase 5 of Dubai Solar Park

Shanghai Electric Group has been appointed by ACWA Power of Saudi Arabia, as the engineering, construction and procurement (EPC) contractor, to deliver the Phase 5 of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai with capacity of 900MW.

Zheng Jianhua, chairman of Shanghai Electric Group, and Muhammed Abunayyan, chairman of ACWA Power, signed a cooperative agreement at an online signing ceremony last week.

The Solar Park project is the largest single-site solar power plant in the Middle East. It comprises both photovoltaic and concentrated solar power technologies and will have a total capacity of around 5GW once complete.

The two groups have been cooperated with each other in the 700MW concentrated solar power (CSP) project and the 250MW PV solar power project, which are the fourth phase of the solar park.

Shanghai Electric Group worked with ACWA Power for bidding the tender of the latest phase of 900MW project.

“ACWA Power and Shanghai Electric are both acknowledged as important participators in the global energy field. The contract signing of 900MW Solar Park project is another milestone along the journey of the pair's cooperation. I hope the upcoming plant will be another benchmark in the region as well as worldwide," said Zheng at the ceremony.
