Aalborg CSP says it has received an order to supply its steam generator to a concentrating solar power (CSP) plant under development in India. The order is for a 25 MW project for Cargo Power and Infrastructure Ltd., with Lauren Engineers & Constructors serving as engineering, procurement and construction contractor.
The CSP plant is the first to be built in the state of Gujarat, India, and is scheduled to start commercial operation by third quarter of 2013. The project – the first in India to use thermal energy storage – will provide energy from the collected solar power for up to nine hours, Aalborg CSP says.
The steam generator, designed by Aalborg CSP, consists of one steam-generating heat exchanger line with one economizer, one evaporator, one superheater and two reheaters.
