SolarReserve and Preneal to build 50MW solar thermal plant


Using SolarReserve’s "molten salt concentrated solar power tower technology" the project will be constructed from Spanish and U.S. equipment and materials. Termosolar Alcazar will also feature integrated energy storage to provide electricity day and night.

The companies claim, in a statement announcing the successful tender, that the installation will have the same operating stability and reliability as a conventional power generator. The companies also claim that this was a critical factor in the joint venture’s successful bid.

The environmental go-ahead for the plant was granted in 2009. It is unclear, from the companies' statement, when construction will begin nor when the plant is expected to come online. pv magazine has requested more details from the companies.
