This thermosolar plant, located in Calasparra (Murcia), uses Linear Fresnel technology. The power reached is the highest developed until now- 30 megawatts (MW). It offers the advantage of not requiring an oil circuit, used in conventional plants, integrating the solar field as a steam generator in the water-steam cycle.
- 28 rows of mirrors, 940.8 meters long with a solar collection surface of 301,056 square meters
- Two identical thermosolar units of 15 MW. Each one of them has a solar field and a power system that may be added to the other unit’s solar field, in order to improve turbine performance in low-solar power periods.
Benefits for the community
- A cleaner energy source of greater potential than conventional technology based on thermal oil circuit
- Progress in the town of Calasparra and surrounding areas with the creation of jobs
