When completed in 2020, the three-phase project will be one of the world's largest single-location solar parks.

A statement said the first phase of the DEWA project will use more than 800,000 double-glass modules upon its completion.

The production and delivery of the modules started this month, Canadian Solar said.

It added that as a pioneer in double-glass module manufacturing technology, Canadian Solar has delivered close to 1GW of double-glass modules worldwide since 2013.

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is part of the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030, which seeks to secure a sustainable supply of energy through diversification in sources.

Dubai aims to reduce its reliance on imported natural gas and increase solar energy to 7 percent of the total by 2010 and 15 percent by 2030.
