Sundrop CSP Project

<BACK

NO.1-1-5


The Sundrop 36 MWth CSP Project is able to heat the greenhouses in wintertime (20,000 MWh/year), to provide fresh water by desalinating seawater (250,000 m3/year) and to run a steam turbine to produce electricity (1700 MWh/year).

  • 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
