According to a statement released, the German electronics giant will design, supply, integrate and construct the concentrated solar power plant, including the mirrors and solar receivers.
Siemens says the solar plant, which will be located in Les Borges Blanques, near Barcelona, will also include energy from biomass. It is scheduled to be operational by the beginning of 2013 and is expected to generate enough energy to supply around 27,000 households.
"Les Borges Blanques plant is a unique project, with a steam turbine that is driven by steam produced either by sunlight or/and by firing biomass," explains the company in its statement.
"Together with the 50 MW Arenales project announced earlier this month, and the 50 MW Olivenza project announced in July, Siemens Energy is now constructing 122.5 MW of parabolic trough solar fields."
