ACWA Power, a leading developer, investor, and operator of power generation, water desalination, and green hydrogen plants, will soon start the first phase of the Dubai-based Noor energy 1 project of 217 megawatts capacity.

The flagship project is set to generate an output capacity of 950 megawatts (MW) with an investment of AED 15.78 billion. The project supports the country’s Clean Energy Strategy 2050 which will boost the share of clean energy by 25% by 2030. This will save 1.6 million tons of carbon dioxide.

As per the reports, the commercial operation certificate has already been issued and the work will start soon. ACWA Power owns a 25% stake in the project.

Noor Energy 1 was also successful in breaking a number of world records, including the world’s tallest 260-metre solar tower and the world’s largest global thermal storage capacity of 15 hours; allowing for energy availability round the clock. This phase will provide clean energy for 320,000 residences and will reduce 1.6 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually.

The latest construction developments include the completion of the foundation of molten salt tanks and turbines, the inauguration of the parabolic trough production line to produce the first of 63,600 units for the entire parabolic trough component, as well as the solar central tower reaching beyond 50 metres.
