(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The partnership combines Cleanergy's CSP technology with Al-Futtaim Carillion's on-the-ground expertise in delivering complex engineering projects.



Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) on Wednesday announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Swedish energy technology company Cleanergy and Al-Futtaim Carillion for the installment of the first stirling engine concentrated solar power (CSP) technology power plant in Dubai, the GCC and wider Mena region



The partnership combines Cleanergy's CSP technology with Al-Futtaim Carillion's on-the-ground expertise in delivering complex engineering projects. The installation consists of 10 units with a total capacity of 110kW as well as a park management supervision system to oversee the project. The permit approval process to install the plant has commenced and the installation is expected to be completed by early 2014



"This MoU aims to support the long-term national initiative 'Green economy for sustainable development' launched by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to achieve sustainable development in the Emirate of Dubai and promote its position as a global hub for finance, business, tourism and green economy," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and chief executive of Dewa



The agreement is in line the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030 to achieve energy diversification by generating 71 per cent from gas, 12 per cent from nuclear energy, 12 per cent from clean coal, and five per cent from solar energy. The strategy also aims to reduce demand for energy by 30 per cent in the Emirate of Dubai by 2030



"We spare no effort to support this vital sector, and work hard to enhance reliability of renewable energy through some promising future projects, like Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, whose first project was inaugurated in October 2013, with targeted production capacity of 1,000 megawatts by 2030," he added



Anders Koritz, chief executive of Cleanergy, said it is a great honour to be working with Dewa and Al-Futtaim Carillion on the first test plant in the region with the company's unique CSP technology



"As Dubai seeks to generate five per cent of its electricity from the sun by 2030, this partnership is an important first step in achieving this target," said Simon Webb, managing director of Al Futtaim Carillion
