Saudi Arabia has launched the second round of its solar power tender programme with a request for proposals for 1.5GW of solar.
The capacity is split up between seven projects ranging from 20MW to 600MW.
Initial expressions of interest in participating in the tender are required by 14 February 2019.
Bidding on a further +700MW will be opened later in the year.
The Kingdom is aiming to install 40GW of solar by 2030.
The first phase was the 300MW Sakaka project, won by ACWA Power.
The seven projects are listed below:
|Madinah Solar PV IPP||50MW|
|Rafha Solar PV IPP||45MW|
|Qurayyat Solar PV IPP||200MW|
|Al Faisaliah Solar PV IPP||600MW|
|Rabigh Solar PV IPP||300MW|
|Jeddah Solar PV IPP||300MW|
|Mahd AlDahab Solar PV IPP||20MW|
PV Tech is hosting a TechTalk Product Series webinar with LONGi Solar to help PV project developers, asset owners and interested parties become aware of the latest in utility-scale PV panel technology, performance and size that is redefining LCOE metrics.
The UK and Ireland markets are seeing multi-GW of pipelines being planned for new utility-scale solar and energy storage during the next few years. These complementary sectors are starting to form new built portfolios for some of the leading global developers and long-term owners. This webinar - featuring presentations from Finlay Colville and Lauren Cook - will explain what is driving the uptick in new project planning, a breakdown of the pipelines by pre-build status, and which companies are behind the new projects.
Understand fully the technical and logistical supply chains that determine the production and performance of solar modules, including all related factors impacting quality, reliability & bankability.
