Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park Phase IV is sized of 6,162 football fields and to generate 950 Megawatts of clean energy.
5th December, 2021 - Dubai, UAE: The China pavilion at EXPO 2020 ushered in “Shanghai Electric Day “ on December 1st 2021, Shanghai Electric is building the phase four of Mohammed Bin Rashid Solar Al Maktoum Park that is aimed to be the world's largest and biggest solar power project.
The 12 billion Dirham phase that is constructed by Shanghai Electric on a landscape of 44 square kilometers is a combination of three Technologies, the Central Tower Concentrated Solar power plant (CT CSP), Parabolic Trough Concentrated Solar power plant (PT CSP) and Photovoltaic solar power plant (PV) comprising a total of 950 megawatts (MW) of clean energy.
In his word to the attendees Mr. Zhao Hui, the project director of Shanghai Electric said “Shanghai Electric is proud to take part in this phase four of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.

With only 62 meters shorter than Paris's famous Eifel tower, The CSP constructed tower in Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park project is considered to be the tallest in CSP with 262 meters high. And the total area of phase four is equal to 6,162 football fields is being implemented by Noor Energy 1 PSC. After the project is into operation, it will reduce 1.6 million tons of carbon emissions every year.
The Construction of the phase four project began in 2018, making it the largest phase built in the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the largest single-site solar park in the world based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model. The park has a planned production capacity of 5,000 MW by 2030, with investments totaling AED 50 billion. When completed, it will save over 6.5 million tons of carbon emissions annually.
