Canadian Solar has supplied 268MW of double-glass Dymond modules for the first phase of the 800MW Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park (DEWA Project) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The company started production and delivery of the modules this month. The first phase of the project will utilise more than 800,000 double-glass modules.

Scheduled to be completed by 2020, it is being looked after by an engineering procurement and construction (EPC) joint venture (JV) consortium, which includes Acciona, Gransolar, and Ghella.

Canadian Solar's chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) Dr Shawn Qu said: “I am confident that Canadian Solar's Dymond modules will perform well in the project's hot desert climate.

“As Dubai diversifies its energy portfolio, our partnership will serve as an excellent example for future utility-scale solar projects in the region and we are eager to contribute further to the energy market growth in the Middle East.”

The solar park is part of the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030 initiative, which aims to secure a sustainable supply of energy through diversification in sources.
