OHL Industrial R&D&I

R&D&i OHL Industrial header image

OHL Industrial, active in the fields of power, Oil & Gas, mining & cement and fire protection, has made innovation an essential strategic pillar. 

In the power area it has been obtained extremely important contracts in the field of renewable energy. The Puerto Errado 2 30 MW thermosolar plant, in Calasparra (Murcia), is the first thermosolar power plant in the world in commercial exploitation, built with direct steam generation technology (Linear Fresnel). In addition to this is the Ence 50 MW biomass plant in Huelva, the largest plant for energy generation using biomass in Spain and with an expected annual production of 337 million kWh. Furthermore, the Arenales Solar thermosolar plant with 50 MW thermal storage, in Morón de la Frontera (Sevilla), has a capacity to supply clean electricity to 42,000 households.

Activity in the Oil & Gas sector, apart from executing a hydrocarbons storage and distribution terminal in the Bahía de Algeciras Port, Cádiz (Spain) and extending the gas fractioning capacity at the Camisea Plant in Pisco (Peru).

In the handling of solids, of interest is our development of an integral system for the grinding, transport, acid cure and piling of copper oxide in Chile. The project is innovating as regards the piling of copper required for leaching, as it includes machinery to enable a semi-continuous process. Furthermore, the copper mineral extraction process has been improved.
