Concentrated Solar project detailed specification agreed

In May of 2015, as a member of a European consortium, we started work on the EU sponsored CAPTure project deleloping the next generation of concentrated solar power plant using energy storage and combined cycle.


A key deliverable in the CAPTure concentrated solar power project was the Brayton cycle component requirement spec. This document describes in details the requirements for all the key components including:

– The Low and High pressure turbochargers

– The interstage intercooler

– The Turbogenerator

– Power electronics

– The control system

– Ancilliaries (e.g. Lubrication and cooling system)

Over 2017, the components will be designed and manufactured ready for test towards the end of the year.
