Sun and salt: SENER’s know-how
Recent news from SENER related to thermoelectric solar plants give the opportunity to speak about one activity sector of the Engineering and Construction multinational whose Catalan headquarters are set up in Barcelona Synchrotron Park.

On one hand, Torresol Energy, a company created by SENER and the alternative energy company from Abu Dhabi MASDAR to promote the technological development, construction, operation and maintenance of large solar power plants, owner of the innovative plants Gemasolar–a pioneering facility with central tower and molten salt heat storage technology- in Fuentes de Andalucía (Seville, Spain); Valle 1 and Valle 2, celebrates its tenth anniversary this month.

On the other hand, SENER and ACCIONA Industrial have achieved in South Africa the connection of the 100 Mw Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant to the grid on 23 February 2018. The Kathu Solar Park CSP Plant, which will supply electricity to 179,000 homes, is equipped with a molten salt storage system that allows 4.5 hours of thermal energy storage to extend the operational capacity of the plant after sunset.

Congratulations!
