Saudi Arabia: Neom to build solar dome
The futuristic city of Neom, being developed in a remote area in the north-west of the kingdom, is to use a novel solar power design for a desalination plant. A deal has been signed with UK-based Solar Water to build a “solar dome”, based on concentrated solar power technology, to provide electricity to the water plant. Work on the project starts this month and is due to be completed by end-2020.
