Major Role For WorleyParsons’ Advisian On World’s Largest Solar Power Project

Noor Energy 1, the joint venture between ACWA Power and the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), has appointed Advisian, the global consulting firm of WorleyParsons, as Owner’s Engineer for the concentrating solar power (CSP) fourth phase (DEWA IV) of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai. The 700MW project will be the largest of its kind in the world.

As an Owner’s Engineer, Advisian will protect the owner’s interests by ensuring all contractors are adhering to project specifications. In this role, Advisian will provide a review of the basic and detailed engineering, manage technology risk and provide technical support as required for the Factory Acceptance Tests during the construction and commissioning of the plant.

Advisian will deliver the project using a specialised CSP technology team based in the Renewable Energy Center of Excellence in Madrid, Spain, with support from Shanghai-based engineers, to interface with the power block design. The company will also draw on the Dubai office for site supervisory support.

“With our staff having been involved in half of all CSP projects globally, we are excited to work on this project that, combined with solar PV, will provide solar electricity around the clock at a cost that is competitive with conventional power in Dubai,” said Andrew Wood, Chief Executive Officer, WorleyParsons.

“Our recent work in solar, floating offshore wind, microgrids and green hydrogen is directly aligned to our organisational strategy. This partnership between Noor Energy 1 and Advisian further demonstrates our shared organisational commitment to paving the way forward for the renewable energy sector,” added Tony Frencham, Group Managing Director for Power, WorleyParsons.

“We’re indeed proud of our cooperation and integration of the Advisian CSP Center of Excellence with our project company team for the design and engineering of the world´s largest CSP Project,” commented Abdulhameed AlMuhaidib, Executive Managing Director of Noor Energy 1.

“We’re confident that such a partnership will be the key to overcoming the most important milestone of the project and successful delivery of the fourth phase of Mohammed bin Rashid Solar Park on time.”

EU Approves Ambitious Energy Efficiency Goals, Encourages Clean Energy Feed-In

Europeans will now be entitled to consume, store and sell the renewable energy they produce in line with ambitious targets set by the EU. The targets are to be reviewed by 2023, and can only be raised, not lowered. By making energy more efficient, Europeans will see their energy bills reduced. In addition, Europe will reduce its reliance on external suppliers of oil and gas, improve local air quality and protect the climate. For the first time, member states will also be obliged to establish specific energy efficiency measures to the benefit of those affected by energy poverty. Member states must also ensure that citizens are entitled to generate renewable energy for their own consumption, to store it and to sell excess production.

Arsenal Unveil Battery Storage System: First Of Its Kind At A UK Football Club

Arsenal Football Club has unveiled a battery storage system (BSS) to store enough energy to run the 60,000 seater Emirates Stadium from kick-off to full time. It follows a unique collaboration with Pivot Power to install a 2MW/2.5MWh lithium ion BSS, with funds managed by Downing LLP. The project, the first of its kind in the UK, will also save club money as it works to support low-carbon plans. The BSS allows Arsenal to avoid peak power prices, buying electricity when it is cheap and storing it for use when prices are high. Typically, energy can cost three times more at peak times than overnight. The installation maintains Arsenal as the leader in sustainability in sport following its commitment to clean energy with Octopus Energy in 2016.
