Solar Tres is a planned 15 MW power plant based on solar thermal energy. It is located west of the city of Écija, in Andalusia, Spain.[1] Solar Tres is based on the solar power tower concepts pioneered in the U.S.'s Solar One and Solar Two demonstration projects. Solar Tres uses a molten salt as its working fluid, allowing it to be stored in the molten state for power generation at any time. The project, which has received a subsidy of five million Euro from the European Commission, makes use of the Solar Two technology tested in Barstow, California, but will be approximately three times the size. Solar Tres will make use of several advances in technology since Solar Two was designed and built.[2] These include:[3] A larger plant with a heliostat field approximately three times the size of Solar Two and an improved plant availability with a 6% improvement in overall annual plant efficiency. 2493 glass-metal heliostats (96-m²) with higher-reflectivity glass and because of simplified design 45% reduction in manufacturing costs. A larger thermal energy storage system, storing 6,250 T of molten nitrate salt (16 hours, 600 MWh). Advanced pump designs that will pump salt directly from the storage tanks, eliminating the need for pump sumps. A steam generator system that will have a forced-recirculation steam drum. A more efficient, higher-pressure reheat turbine, and A simplified molten-salt flow loop that reduces the number of valves by 50%.[4] Although the turbine will be only slightly larger than that at Solar Two, the larger heliostat field and thermal storage system will enable the plant to operate 24 hours a day during summer and have an annual capacity factor of approximately 65%.[2] See also Energy portal Avoiding Dangerous Climate Change List of solar thermal power stations Renewable energy in the European Union Sener Aeronáutica Solar power in Spain Solar thermal energy The Solar Project References ^ NREL CSP Technology Workshop: Solar Tres, SENER Ingeniería y Sistemas, S.A., 2007-03-07, accessed 2007-05-31 ^ a b Solar Tres project ^ Central receiver system (CRS) solar power plant using molten salt as heat transfer fluid ^ Central receiver system (CRS) solar power plant using molten salt as heat transfer fluid - (broken link) v · d · eSolar power in Europe European Renewable Energy Council · European Photovoltaic Industry Association Solar power by country Austria · Czech Republic · Germany · Greece · Italy · Portugal · Romania · Spain · United Kingdom Solar thermal power stations Andasol solar power station · Energia Solar De Puertollano · PS20 solar power tower · PS10 solar power tower · Jülich Solar Tower · Themis solar power tower · Puerto Errado 1 Proposed solar thermal power stations Andasol 2-3 · Solar Tres Power Tower · Solenha · Valle Solar Power Station · Photovoltaic power stations Arnedo Solar Plant · Finsterwalde Solar Park · Planta Solar La Magascona & La Magasquila · Lieberose Photovoltaic Park · Köthen Solar Park · Moura photovoltaic power station · Olmedilla Photovoltaic Park · Puertollano Photovoltaic Park · Strasskirchen Solar Park · Vepřek Solar Park · Waldpolenz Solar Park · Solar power companies Abengoa · Aleo Solar · Ausra · BP Solar · Brightsource · Citizenre · Conergy · eSolar · First Solar · Pyron Solar · Q-Cells · Sharp Solar · SkyFuel · SolarCity · SolarWorld · Solon · Stirling Energy Systems
