As part of an invitation to tender for the NOOR III project, the central solar power tower (CSP) has many advantages which include:
- High efficiency solar to electric
- High heat storage capacity and high reliability
Although technology has proven its ability in numerous prototypes and industrial realizations around the world, the competitive aspect of the tender challenges manufacturers to introduce new improvements in power supply, automation and storage management. What’s more, the lack of feedback on a long term basis results in risks to the durability of the plant. Therefore, special attention must be concentrated on the specifications and the maintenance schedules of operations.
