Masdar announces potential wind farm

Reading Time: 1 minute

MasdarIn an effort to meet the UAE’s ambitious plan to generate 7% of power from green sources by 2020, the country’s clean energy company, Masdar, has announced the building of a new 100 megawatt wind farm.  While wind is not generally as productive as solar in the Gulf Coast region, it still plays a key role in energy production. If feasibility studies go as planned in the new farm’s area (purported to be near the town of Silah on the Saudi Arabia border) a contract could be awarded to a builder as early as the beginning of next year.

It is estimated that the project would cost about US$200 million.  Similar projects involving solar power were aided by government subsidies, and those will most likely be continued on the wind project.
