2018.05.29     From: CSP Focus光略咨询


Shagaya 50MW concentrated solar power (CSP) plant in under the Phase One of 2GW Kuwait Shagaya Renewable Park. As Mr. Oliver Baudson, Managing Director of TSK-Flagsol Engineering talks to CSP Focus, “the CSP project is now under construction, and will be fully completed by the end of this year, when Kuwait will have the 1st commercial CSP plant operate.”


Developed by Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR), the Shagaya 50MW CSP project signed EPC contract (USD $385 million) with a consortium consisting of Spanish EPC company TSK and Kuwait's Kharafi National in 2015. It takes parabolic trough CSP technology, and has 9 hours molten salt thermal electricity storage.

Three Phases of the 2GW Shagaya RE Master Plan: 

Phase 1: 70 MW of RE capacity (50 MW CSP, 10 MW PV and 10 MW Wind); 

Phase 2: 930MW, extension of the plant to a total of 1,000 MW installed RE capacity (CSP, CPV, PV and/or wind); 

Phase 3: 1000MW, extension of the plant to a total of 2,000 MW installed RE capacity (CSP, CPV, PV and/or wind).


Expected Technology Distribution of the 2GW Shagaya RE Master Plan:

CSP-- Parabolic Trough: 750 MW 

CSP-- Solar Tower: 400 MW

PV: 700MW

Wind: 150MW.


This mixture of technologies is subject for review and further optimized to maximize the Park’s power production during annual summer peak demand. 


 

TSK is also responsible for the construction of 10MW PV plant under the first phase. The total investment of the 50MW CSP and 10MW PV TSK participated goes to 362 million euros. 


Mr. Oliver Baudson explains further, “As the 1st CSP plant, the government gives great support, the land is free, and no specifications on the local content, while we are trying to train the local employees and cooperate with local vendors to lower the cost.”



Regarding the details of Shagaya CSP project, Mr. Oliver Baudson will speak more on the upcoming CSP Focus MENA 2018 event in Marrakech, Morocco during June 27-28, which will be the can’t missing gathering for CSP industry players watching Middle East & North Africa region. Other global leading CSP developer/EPCs will also join the Marrakech conference including MASEN, ACWA Power, Abengoa Energia, EDF, SUPCON Solar, and Empresarios Agrupados.


Regarding the participation and model in global CSP market, TSK would like to reach deeper cooperation with other international companies in project development, EPC, construction, engineering and consultancy. Countries like China, UAE, Morocco and Kuwait are the key emerging markets for TSK CSP development.
