According to foreign media reports, recently, the Dubai government approved the Mohamed Ben Rashid Al Maktoum solar Park (Mohammed bin Rashid Al Solar Park Maktoum) four phase 700 MW project. That will allow the solar park to reach 5000 megawatts by 2030, with a 260 meter solar tower, the world's tallest solar tower.

The solar park is located about 50 kilometers (31 miles) south of Dubai, the first phase of production in 2013. Subsequently, the 200 megawatt solar Park, phase two photovoltaic power plant, was put into operation earlier this year, including 2 million 300 thousand panels of photovoltaic panels. By 2030, the project will generate electricity and is expected to grow to 5000 megawatts. The park will eventually cover 214 square kilometers, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 6 million 500 thousand tons per year.

The four phase of the 700 megawatt project includes the construction of the world's tallest solar tower. The contract was awarded to the consortium of Saudi Arabian ACWA Power power and China Shanghai electric, which was awarded the lowest flat power generation cost (LCOE) at 7.3 cents per kilowatt hour.

The contract at about 260 meters was awarded by the consortium of Saudi Arabian ACWA power company and China Shanghai electric, the company bid $7.3 of electricity cost (LCOE) per kWh / minute. The Dubai Department of hydropower (DEWA) describes it as the world's lowest LCOE.

The four phase of the project, which will begin production in 2020, will make it the world's largest single center concentrator solar thermal power generation (CSP) project based on the IPP model. These facilities use lenses and reflectors to focus the sun's light and use it to heat the fluid, which in turn generates steam and converts heat into electricity through a steam turbine.
