On the eve of the United Nations Abu Dhabi Climate Meeting, set to begin on Sunday, the Emirates Water and Electricity Company announced that the 1,177 MW Noor Abu Dhabi solar plant has started commercial operation.
According to Forbes, the Noor Abu Dhabi project is the largest operational single site solar project in the world. It’s important to make the distinction between this and a ‘solar park’.
The Noor Abu Dhabi project, which is not state-financed is the work of a consortium that includes Abu Dhabi Power Corporation, Japan’s Marubeni Corp and Chinese solar manufacturer Jinko Solar.
The $870 million project was the result of a competitive tender process that will see electricity from the site sold to the Emirates Water and Electricity Company (EWEC) for around 2.4 cents per kWh, a record at the time of the auction and a record for any completed solar project.
