Solar-thermal technology allows electricity to be generated in a manageable way while also offering huge possibilities for cost reductions in the near future.

Engineering and construction:

We design and construct electricity generation plants that use concentrating solar power (CSP) technology, with three formats: tower, parabolic-trough and solar-combined cycle hybrid, with an accumulated experience of more than 651 MW.

We were the first to launch a concentrating solar power (CSP) plant using tower technology on a commercial scale (PS10) and we were the first to construct an integrated solar combined cycle plant (ISCC), which is located in Morocco.

At the end of 2010 we began construction on the largest solar-thermal plant in the world, in Arizona, United States, with a gross capacity of 280 MW.
