CADE proudly announces the first six months of EDITOR steam production

2019.03.14     From: cadeengineering.com


The EDITOR CSP (concentrated solar plant), and Solid-TES (concrete thermal storage), have been continuously delivering process steam during the last six months to KEAN Soft Drinks’ factory in Limassol (Cyprus). Automatic operation of the system for the steam production mode is also achieved. 


This is the first plant of its class in the Island of Cyprus which construction was finished on September, 2018.


Cyprus is an excellent location for process heat production by means of solar energy, due to its outstanding solar resources and the elevated cost of conventional fossil-fuels’ logistics to the island.


Integrating with existing conventional system


KEAN uses a fossil-fired boiler to produce saturated steam (188°C, 11 barg) for different industrial processes to produce their juices and soft-drinks. The solar power system designed in EDITOR is integrated with the existing conventional system without performing any modification in the existing boiler system.


Emissions reduction


EDITOR produces more than 5 % of the total KEAN’s saturated steam demand covering a substantial portion of the factory normal consumption and supporting the fossil-fired boiler during the de-juicing periods, which leads to a reduced consumption of fossil-fuel and reduction of the CO2 emissions.


EDITOR's main equipment


This plant’s main equipment, which occupies a total ground area of 1250 m2, is listed below:


EDITOR Concentrated Solar Plant and SolidTES map


125 kWth two-row PTC field with a total dimension of 50m x 12m

Two 20 ft standard containers for the 600 kWhr concrete thermal energy storage

One 20 ft standard container for the kettle-type boiler, thermal oil pump and control system


Due to the installation of the solid-TES energy storage system, system pre-heating activities are optimized and solar energy produced steam is delivered during the night and during the cloudy days. Weekends and non-operational days are utilized to fill the thermal storage in order to maximize the solar production.
