Masdar Awards $600 Million Contract for World’s Largest Thermal Solar Plant: Shams 1 in UAE

Abengoa-Abu-Dhabi-Masdar-CSP-Solar-Thermal-MagazineAbu Dhabi’s Masdar clean energy company has awarded a $600 million contract to a European consortium – the Spanish solar company Abengoa and the French oil and gas group Total – to build what it is billing as the world’s biggest single-site solar power plant.

The solar plant, named Shams 1, will be located at Madinat Zayed, about 120 kilometers southwest of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Under the contract, the 100 MW concentrating solar power (CSP) facility is to be ready by the second half of 2012. Masdar will maintain a 60% stake in the project, while each of the European partners will hold a 20% share.

As noted in the Abu Dhabi daily The National, the project represents Abu Dhabi’s biggest commitment to renewable energy to date and will be 10 times larger than the company’s existing solar panel array at Masdar City. Abu Dhabi has set a goal of generating 7% of its power capacity via renewable energy by the year 2020. See also: Masdar Initiative: Hydrogen Power Abu Dhabi

According to the Solar Thermal Magazine, Shams 1 will be the largest CSP plant in the world, extending over an area of 2.5 square kilometers and featuring a solar field of 768 parabolic trough collectors. Shams 1 is the first CSP plant registered under the UN’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and is eligible for carbon credits. It will displace approximately 175,000 ton of CO2 per year, the equivalent of planting 1.5 million trees or removing 15,000 cars from Abu Dhabi’s roads.

(“Bragging rights” about being the world’s biggest CSP plant may be shortlived: For example, a CSP plant of similar power generation capacity is planned for Jordan – the JOAN1 project, and a complex of three CSP plants, generating a total of 400MW is slated for California – the BrightSource Ivanpah project.)
