The solar park is said to be the world’s largest single-site solar park based on the independent power producer (IPP) model.  

With a target capacity of 5,000MW by 2030, the solar park is anticipated to save more than 6.5 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually upon completion. 

The park is part of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and supports DEWA’s aim to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. 

Spanning 20km², the 1,800MW AC solar plant will be made operational across three phases. 

The project scope includes evacuation and interconnection systems such as two gas-insulated substations, high-voltage underground cabling, and medium-voltage distribution networks. 

The award comes after L&T’s construction division received a contract to construct an All India Institute of Medical Sciences facility in Haryana, India, earlier this month.
