Telvent Providing Distributed Control System For CSP Plants


Telvent, a global IT solutions and business information services provider, has been selected to design, install and manage the distributed control system (DCS) for Abengoa's Solacor I and II thermosolar power plants in El Carpio, Cordoba, Spain.

With the DCS, plant operators will have the ability to control and supervise all solar plant processes in accordance with the most current climate conditions, Telvent says. For example, the technology will allow operators to manage the position of the parabolic troughs at each 50 MW plant to efficiently capture the sun's energy. This creates a more efficient operation and maximum power reliability for customers, according to the company.
