Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates - Thursday, April 18th 2013 [ME NewsWire]

Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy company, today launched an US$31.99 million utility-scale, 15-megawatt solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant in the Islamic Republic of Mauritania. The Sheikh Zayed Solar Power Plant is located in the capital city of Nouakchott and is the largest solar PV plant in Africa. The new facility accounts for 10 percent of Mauritania’s energy capacity and will displace approximately 21,225 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
