Dubai will build the largest and most powerful of the planet solar plant


There are many projects that have been presented today and which are pending to create solar plants of huge dimensions. To date, the largest of its kind built by companies of the size of Google, BrightSource and NRG Enery is truly the power of Ivanpah solar power plant. Located in the Mojave Desert, and with an area of 13 square kilometers, it is able to generate single up to 392 megawatts, enough to supply power to some 140,000 households.

As you can see, speak of a solar power plant really amazing not to mention huge, at least until Dubai has been proposed to beat this record and for that nothing better that one of its megastructures where arrive even overcome the technological limits. What we want to build in Dubai, is literally a solar system can generate up to 1,000 MW in its first phase of development reaching the 5,000 megawatts once construction has been completed.

As it is given to know the authorities, this huge work of engineering will consist of five major facilities inside the solar Park Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The first stage of this pharaonic construction will be list at the end of 2020 or early and 2021, at that time expected that plants are capable of generating these promised 1,000 megawatts while, 2030 , is expected that the work is done, thus reaching the promised 5,000 megawatts.

As you can see in the photos, we are talking about a solar system comprised of millions of mirrors solar thermal computer-controlled at all times in such a way that they always reflect sunlight toward a series of boilers located on a tower in the center of the installation. All this energy heats water in tubes inside of the boilers that finally turns into steam. Thanks to this steam sets in motion a series of turbines that are truly responsible to generate electricity. As detail, let know you that one of the advantages of this type of facility is that thermal heat can also be stored in a way that can generate electricity even at night.

Once we know these data, the best thing is to put them in perspective. According to the responsible bodies to carry out all this project, once the plant is fully operational it will help reduce carbon emissions annually by up to 6.5 million tons. Without a doubt a clear example of how Dubai, whose money has been achieved thanks to oil, has made awareness of the fact that this will not last forever and have planned not only generated 7% of its energy through renewable, but they have active a plan by which will generate up to 25% in 2030 by raising this figure up to 75% by 2050.
