Using a constant energy source
The need to produce CO2 neutral electricity by using renewable energy sources has created various innovative solutions. One of these solutions is Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), which are effective especially in sun-rich countries.
MAN Diesel & Turbo are assisting global utility companies in the construction of these highly specialized and remarkable power plants.
In CSP plants, mirrors reflect the solar radiation to a receiver, providing an extremely concentrated energy output. Different technologies exist for the extraction of this energy. Typically, the sunlight is converted via mirrors and receivers into heating through the vaporizing of water into steam. Other CSPs work by increasing the temperature of thermo oil or molten salt. Steam is then produced in water-fed heat exchangers and expanded in a steam turbine which in turn drives a generator.
Efficiency is the key word
In CSP power plants efficiency plays a major role due to high overall investment costs and renewable energies feed-in legislation.
MAN Diesel & Turbo has the technology and the know-how to optimize the complete water/steam-cycle in close cooperation with our customers. Depending on the plant concept re-heat (two casings) or single casing steam turbines both with up to 8 bleeds for pre-heating purposes can be supplied.
MAN Diesel & Turbo has delivered more than 10 steam turbines for solar power generation with a power output range of 4 up to 125 MW.
