Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park will be the largest CSP project in the world
Advisian has been chosen as the owner’s engineer on the fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai. Advisian is a consulting unit of WorleyParsons and was appointed to the project by Noor Energy 1.
Noor Energy 1 is an entity comprising Acwa Power, Shanghai Electric and the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), and is responsible for the design, building and operation of the fourth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.
As per the terms of the deal, Advisian will provide a review of the basic and detailed engineering; will help manage technology risk and provide technical support as required for the factory acceptance tests and during the construction and commissioning of the plant.
“Our recent work in the renewable energy sector, in solar, floating offshore wind, microgrids and green hydrogen is directly aligned to our organisational strategy. This partnership between Noor Energy and Advisian further demonstrates our shared organisational commitment to paving the way forward for the renewable energy sector,” said Tony Frencham, group MD of power at WorleyParsons.
The firm says it plans to deliver the project using a specialised CSP technology team based in the Renewable Energy Center of Excellence in Madrid, Spain, with support from Shanghai-based engineers, to interface with the power block design. It will also rely on its office in Dubai for site supervisory support.
“We’re indeed proud of our cooperation and integration of the Advisian CSP Center of Excellence with our project company team for the design and engineering of the world´s largest CSP Project,” said Abdulhameed AlMuhaidib, executive managing director of Noor Energy 1. “We’re confident that such partnership will be the key to overcoming the most important milestone of the project and successful delivery of the 4th Phase of Mohammed bin Rashid Solar Park on time.”
