Spain: Siemens to supply solar field for 50 MW CSP plant


Siemens has said it will supply a turnkey solar field, including solar receivers, to the Termosolar Olivenza 1 project, which is owned Ibereólica Solar Olivenza, S.L. It will be located in the town of Olivenza, in the Badajoz region of Spain’s autonomous community, Extremadura.

Set to include 123 loops of parabolic trough collectors, the plant is expected to be operational by 2012, and should provide enough energy to power around 50,000 households.

"Siemens is able to design, construct and integrate flexible solar fields to address the project-specific needs of our customers," commented Avi Brenmiller, CEO of the Siemens Business Unit Solar Thermal Energy.
