Aluminium and solar. The solar park has a current installed capacity of 1,013 megawatts using photovoltaic solar panels.

DEWA is implementing an additional 1,850 megawatts of projects using solar panels and Concentrated Solar Power (CSP). Eventually, its capacity will reach 5,000MW by 2030.

DEWA will supply EGA’s smelter with 560,000 megawatt hours of solar power annually from the facility, sufficient to produce 40,000 tonnes of aluminium in the first year itself.
