The lender did not disclose the amount it would lend, nor the total value of the multi-tower CSP project. The company behind it is a joint venture between UK-based Nur Energie Ltd and Greek oil and energy firm Motor Oil Hellas (FRA:MHZ). The two have earlier announced plans to build a CSP park with molten salt storage on the island of Crete.

According to Wiki-Solar, the installed utility-scale CSP capacity globally reached around 6 GW by the end of 2017.
