Project Overview


It is the first utility-scale CSP project in Kuwait. KISR opted for parabolic trough technology, with 10 hours of thermal energy storage (TES) using molten salt, and a dry cooling system to minimize water consumption.


Backup fossil fuel may be implemented only for operational purposes; the fuel foreseen is light fuel-oil which will be transported to the site via tankers. Water will be carried out to the plant by road tankers.


The CSP project with Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is important to cover peak demand periods. And it will enable Kuwait to assess the performance of this technology under local climate conditions.

  • What Is Concentrated Solar Power?

    What exactly is concentrated solar-thermal power (CSP) and how does it work? Mirrors are used in CSP technologies to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto a receiver. In the receiver, the energy from concentrated sunlight heats a high-temperature fluid.This heat, also known as thermal energy, can be used to generate electricity by spinning a turbine or powering an engine. Water desalination, incre
