Plans for 120 MW plant in the UAE

Share

United Arab Emirates-based private utility Utico Middle East has said the 40 MW solar project it wants to develop in its home emirate of Ras al Khaimah culd be expanded to 120 MW if talks to connect it to the UAE national grid prove successful.

A report yesterday on the Arabian Business website said Utico was in talks to secure connection to the grid which would permit the project – for which Utico is calling for pre-qualification enquiries – to be trebled in size.

The 40 MW plant, which will connect to Utico's private grid, will also provide power for the 100,000m3/day desalination plant nearby for which Utico ran a pre-qual process which attracted more than 20 applicants.

In the Arabian Business report, Utico executive vice chairman Richard Menezes called on the UAE government to back solar developers by easing access to the national grid.
