Puerto Errado 2 Thermosolar plant. Murcia

  • The Puerto Errado 2 Thermoelectric Solar plant, located in Calasparra (Murcia), is the most powerful Fresnel linear technology plant developed until now (30 MW). Its construction began in 2Q2010 and it began operating in October 2012
  • It uses direct steam technology, offering the advantage of not requiring a traditional oil circuit, integrating the solar field as a steam producer in the water-steam cycle
  • Its basic structure consists of two identical 15 MW thermosolar units. Each unit consists of a solar field and a power system, which in turn may be joined to the other solar field, in order to improve turbine performance in low-solar energy periods

Benefits for the community

  • It offers a clean energy generation alternative, which greater potential than conventional technology based on cylinder-parabolic mirrors
  • Specific local conditions have been taken into account, and air-based cooling is used with negligible water consumption
  • Water has been used as a thermal fluid instead of polluting and explosive oil, giving it greater sustainability than conventional technology
