ATACAMA I (2014/2015)

Atacama-1 CSP plant in Chile is a plant with tower thermo solar technology which includes 10,600 heliostats that follow the sun in two axes concentrating solar radiation in a point on the top part of the tower. It is precisely in the receptor where the heat is transferred to the molten salts. In turn, these molten salts transfer the heat – by way of a heat exchanger – to a watercourse in order to generate overheated and reheated steam, which in turn feeds into a turbine capable of producing approximately 110 MW.
