*Global CSP Project Updates*
Solar Sustainability: Central Tower of 700 MW CSP Project by Shanghai Electric and DEWA Tops Out in Dubai
Construction partners on the 950 MW Noor Energy 1 Concentrating Solar Power- Photovoltaic project in Dubai completed the 260-meter high receiver tower on January 9, Shanghai Electric, lead EPC contractor, said in a statement.
CSNP Royal Tech Urat 100MW Parabolic Trough CSP Project was successfully connected to the gird at 22:49 p.m. on January 8th, 2020, becoming the first 100MW large-scale parabolic trough CSP plant in China. Up to date, China have 8 large-scale CSP projects with total capacity of 500MW in operation.
Hayward Tyler, a manufacturer of performance-critical pumps and motors for the energy sector, has been awarded a multimillion-dollar contract to supply a glandless pump package to major Chinese EPC, Shanghai Electric, for installation at Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park Phase IV, a 950 MW hybrid concentrating solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) project.
Swedish thermal energy storage developer Azelio plans to deploy about 25 MW of its systems in Jordan. With their partner Hussein Atieh & Sons Co (HAE), they will start with a 50-kW installation this year and plan to add 3 MW in 2021, 7 MW in 2022 and 15 MW in 2023.
The 100MW Masdar project is one of the world’s largest operational concentrated solar power plants. Sanad Powertech has been awarded a contract for the MRO operations of the steam engine and power generator of Shams Power Company.
*CSP Market & Study Share*
A total capacity of 381.6MW CSP projects were newly built up across the world in the year of 2019, making an increase rate of 6.29%. Specifically, China successfully completed four new CSP projects with capacity of 200MW, 52.1% of the global total.
In Duqm, OPWP envisions the potential for a 600MW Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project with thermal storage. The capacity level and timing of the project are under review.
One more year, the concentrated solar power generation in Spain has proven its reliability, reaching punctual contributions of about 10% and 2.1% of the total electricity generation in Spain in 2019, consolidating its image of reliable technology after more than 10 years of operation of part of its fleet.
SolarReserve, one of America’s last remaining Concentrated Solar Power developers, appears to have ceased operations — just as some global markets may be warming up.
Cutting-edge camera technology and irradiation forecasts could increase CSP revenues by several percentage points and boost competitiveness in key China and Middle East markets. Advances in sky camera systems are set to drive up CSP efficiency in the coming years.
*CSP Industry and Company News*
ABU DHABI, 16th January, 2020 (WAM) -- Khalifa University of Science and Technology, Masdar City, and Wahaj Solar today jointly announced the installation of a first-of-its-kind solar concentrator in the UAE at the Masdar Institute Solar Platform.
SPTC automatically raises warnings and alarms as soon as an adjustable temperature threshold is exceeded andtransfers signals to the main system for controlling the deflection of heliostats.
CLEAN ENERGY XXI - Abengoa (MCE: ABG / P: SM) has successfully carried out the synchronization of the plant's turbine solar thermal of Luneng Haixi tower that is being built in China and in which Abengoa has participated as a technology provider.
