ABB collaborates with DEWA to Support UAE's Clean Energy Ambition

Swiss firm ABB, in conjunction with Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), recently announced completion of a major substation that will help evacuate power from the Mohamed Bin RashidAl Maktoum (MBR) Solar Park, a key element of the vision to generate 75% of Dubai’s power from clean energy sources by 2050.

The 400/132 kilovolt (kV) gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) substation was built for DEWA to connect the second phase of the MBR Solar Park and integrate 200 MW of electricity to the transmission grid.

The substation is the first of its kind in the UAE to integrate clean energy with the traditional energy grid.

Further expansions are planned and the MBR Solar Park, when completed, will be spread across a 70 square kilometer area, with a capacity of 5,000 MW - enough to serve 800,000 homes and help mitigate the impact of around 6.5 million tons of carbon dioxide per year.

At the inauguration of the substation in December of 2016, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA stated, “At DEWA, we do not rest on our laurels. Instead, we continue to do our best. We are committed to launching further renewable and clean energy projects, to enhance sustainability and green economy, and help establish a brighter and happier future, for generations to come.”
