Torresol Energy and SENER will once again attend this year’s World Future Energy Summit, the international future renewable energy conference that will be held from the 15th to the 17th of January in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Both companies, leaders in the solar power industry due to their development and application of innovative technology, will share a stand where they will showcase their latest achievements, a year after having commercially launched the Valle 1 and Valle 2 power plants in Cadiz (south of Spain) and after having operated the Gemasolar plant in Seville (south of Spain) as it was expected.
SENER, which is a leader in the sector both for its technological solutions and for the number of CSP plants whose engineering and construction it has developed, will bring its latest technological achievements to the trade fair: the cleaning systems HECTOR for heliostat plants and PARIS, for parabolic trough cleaning plants. Likewise, SENER will show the improvements to its SENERtrough® parabolic trough system, with the presentation of its second generation, the SENERtrough®-2.
As for Torresol Energy, it will show off the expertise in solar plant operation and maintenance it has acquired from its experience with Gemasolar, the first solar plant in the world to combine central tower technology with a molten salt storage system and also on the other two projects, Valle 1 and Valle 2, two twin plants of parabolic trough technology, whose entrance into commercial operation celebrates this January one year.
