Astronergy Secures Contract to Supply PV Modules for UAE’s $136 bn Solar Project

By Editor


Astronergy has inked a deal to supply photovoltaic (PV) modules for one of the world’s largest solar projects situated in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The agreement was announced following a visit by representatives from Masdar, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), and Larsen & Toubro (L&T), India’s premier engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) company.

The delegation, on March 18th, met at Astronergy’s Haining Manufacturing Base, situated in China’s Zhejiang Province, to discuss details regarding the 1,800-megawatt (MW) solar power project for Dubai. Their tour of Astronergy’s production facilities shed light on the advanced TOPCon technology employed in the manufacture of PV modules.

Astronergy’s role in this venture was solidified on October 16th, 2023, when it secured the contract to supply 1,800 MW of ASTRO N5 n-type TOPCon PV modules for the sixth phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.

Developed jointly by Masdar and DEWA, this phase represents a significant leap forward in the UAE’s renewable energy business. Upon completion, the solar park’s total capacity will surge to 4,660 MW, contributing significantly to the nation’s clean energy goals.

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, with investments totaling AED 50 billion ($136.13 billion), stands as a cornerstone of the UAE Energy Strategy 2050 initiative. The completion of all phases of the solar park by 2026 is poised to elevate clean energy’s contribution to 24 percent of the emirate’s energy mix.

Chuan Lu, Chairman and CEO of Astronergy, expressed pride in the company’s role as the sole module supplier for this monumental project, highlighting Astronergy’s dedication to enhancing efficiency and sustainability.

The sixth phase slated to connect to the grid in the second quarter of 2026, with an annual reduction of over 6.5 million tons of carbon emissions is anticipated. News Desk
