UAE's Al Dhafra solar project will contribute the shift to sustainable energy


Abu Dhabi,15 September 2021:  Hitachi ABB Power Grids today announced that it will supply large generator step-up (GSU) transformers, protection and telecommunication systems to China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC), the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) Contractor for construction of the Al Dhafra PV2 Solar project in Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) is developing the plant along with Abu Dhabi's Masdar, EDF Renewables and Jinko Power. The project is located about 35 kilometers from Abu Dhabi city and will supply power to Emirates Water and Electricity Company. 

The Al Dhafra Solar Photovoltaic project, consisting of approximately 3 million solar panels, will be the world's largest single-site solar farm. With 2 gigawatts of power capacity, the farm will generate electricity for an estimated 160,000 homes across the AE, contributing to the shift to sustainable renewable energy. The project is expected to be put into operation by November 2022.

This benchmark project in the UAE  is the latest example of how Hitachi ABB Power Grids' world-leading technologies are helping to build a global, interconnected and sustainable energy system, enabling sustainable societies and putting the company's Sustainability 2030 strategy into action.

“We are proud to be part of the Al Dhafra PV2 Solar project as it is a great opportunity for our vision of augmenting the share of renewables in the world's energy mix,” said Dr. Mostafa AlGuezeri, Managing Director of Hitachi ABB Power Grids in the UAE, Gulf, Near East and Pakistan. “Electricity will be the backbone of the entire energy system and solar energy will be the one of the most competitive renewable energy in the coming decade, contributing to a carbon-neutral future. The win was unique as we will be delivering these large-scale transformers, control and protection panels and telecom systems in a very short timeframe.”

The high-quality and durable transformers, protection and telecommunication systems are designed to withstand the hot desert climate and intermittent solar power supply and will help to stabilize power transmission to the local power grid, supporting energy-efficiency and the supply of cost-effective solar energy.
