Brussels, 15th of March 2019
The record-breaking Dubai 700 MW CSP + 250 MW PV Hybrid Project Noor Energy 1, developed by Acwa Power in close cooperation with DEWA, Shanghai Electric Group Corporation as EPC, and Abengoa Energía as solar field technology provider, will utilize the Rioglass Solar tempered mirror and solar receiver technologies.
Rioglass Solar has received the confidence of the project partners and the largest order in its history in terms of megawatt power as well as in volume of products. Rioglass Solar will deliver its high-performing PTR 90-4G receiver tubes and 8.2 Parabolic Trough mirrors based on its impressive track record and its high-quality proven product development and manufacturing capabilities. It will supply these products of all three parabolic trough CSP units, each providing 200 MWe totaling 600 MWe, for the largest Parabolic Trough CSP project in the world. When completed, the solar complex will provide clean energy to more than 320.000 homes in Dubai, while reducing carbon emissions by 1,6 million ton per year.
Leading Technology in Receivers and Mirrors
Rioglass Solar´s innovative tempered Parabolic Trough mirror technology was first introduced in 2008 and has since then convinced customers around the world for its high performance both optically as in handling and O&M perspective. More than 3,5 GWe of these mirrors are operational worldwide and have been adapted to many different trough designs.
From the technologies it acquired from Siemens and Schott, Rioglass has forged a new generation of superior quality and reliability solar absorbers. This project will reemphasize Rioglass Solar´s position in the market with this high added-value product excelling in optical efficiency, durability, bankability and low O&M cost.
