ACCIONA attends CSP Focus MENA 2019
2019.06.27 From: CSPFocus光略咨询
ACCIONA, through its Industrial business line, will be one of the participating companies in the 4th edition of CSP Focus MENA 2019, which takes place in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), from June 26th to 27th.
This meeting is one of the main events focused on solar thermal energy in the region and brings together industry professionals and institutional representatives every year.
ACCIONA, through its Industrial business line, works with various technologies for thermal power generation: solar thermal power plants or CSP (Concentrated Solar Power), biomass power plants, waste-to-energy plants, and combined cycles.
The Group has extensive experience in the execution of turnkey projects that incorporate solar thermal technology. It has built the CSP Noor I plant (160 MW), in Morocco, the Bokpoort (50 MW) and Kathu (100 MW) thermosolar plants, in South Africa, and is currently running the Cerro Dominador thermosolar plant (110 MW), in Chile, the first of its kind in Latin America.
In the Thermal Generation business line, ACCIONA performs all the necessary activities in the value chain up to the commercial operation of electricity production plants. It includes in this category conventional stations, solar thermal and photovoltaic renewable generation plants, and units for the recovery of energy from waste.
ACCIONA has been present in South Africa since 2013, developing renewable energy projects. The Company is currently part of the joint venture that is carrying out an EPC contract for the Bokpoort Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plant in Northern Cape (South Africa). Completion is planned for December 2015. The plant has a gross installed capacity of 55 MW with two thermal energy storage (TES) tanks with a diameter of 36/40 meters and a height of 18 meters. They contain molten salt that provides 9.3 hours of operation (1,300 MWht), using cylindrical-parabolic technology with 180 SENER trough loops, 150 meters of collectors and a Siemens turbine. The civil works involved 600,000 m3 of earthworks, 9,000 foundations and 200,000 welding inches. In March 2016, the Bokpoort Solar Thermal Power Plant in South Africa was completed, boasting a capacity of 50 MW. ACCIONA’s commitment to the development of renewables in South Africa was recently rewarded when the consortium it belongs to was awarded preferred bidder status for the EPC contract for the future Kathu CSP plant, with a capacity of 100 MW.
This division's cumulative capacity exceeds 800 MW for projects completed and over 200 MW under construction, making it a leader in the development of turnkey solar thermal power plants, with over 600 MW installed. This type of power plant is known for its electrical generation capacity, using solar radiation as an energy source and fluids as thermal conductors. One of the most important innovations in the solar thermal plants we have developed is thermal storage using molten salts, which allows the plants to continue generating energy even when there is no sunlight.
ACCIONA was the main contractor in the world's largest solar thermal plant to date, Noor I, located in Ouarzazate (Morocco). This plant uses CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) and parabolic trough technology, as well as thermal storage using molten salts. With an electrical generation capacity of 160 MW, it was commissioned at the end of 2015.
The Company has worked on a number of projects in Mexico, such as Baja California Sur III and Baja California Sur V power plants; the latter of these has been under warranty since September 2016. ACCIONA has also worked on open-cycle power plant projects in Mexico, such as Baja California II, with a configuration of 3x45 MW.
