Canadian Solar Inc. announced it has been selected as the sole module supplier to provide 268MW of double-glass Dymond modules for the first phase of the 800MW Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park (DEWA Project) in Dubai.
The EPC Joint Venture (JV) Consortium consists of Acciona, Gransolar and Ghella. The first phase of the DEWA project will use more than 800,000 double-glass modules upon its completion. The production and delivery has started this month.
Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar, commented: "We are proud to be partnering with Masdar / DEWA / EDF and the EPC JV on this outstanding project. I am confident that Canadian Solar's Dymond modules will perform well in the project's hot desert climate. As Dubai diversifies its energy portfolio, our partnership will serve as an excellent example for future utility-scale solar projects in the region, and we are eager to contribute further to the energy market growth in the Middle East."
