Israel is building the world’s tallest concentrated solar power project

Three years after Israel first announced plans for an enormous solar power station, the project is progressing nicely. The 121 MW Ashalim Solar Thermal Power Station is under construction in the sunny Negev desert, and currently ranks as Israel’s largest renewable energy project to date. When it begins operating sometime [...]

Workers have been busy installing the mirrors around Ashalim concentrated solar power plant in Negev desert, Israel

It's a busy place these days in Israel’s Negev Desert, where the Ashalim Solar Thermal Power Station - the world's tallest - continues to take shape. Thanks to the efforts of 1,000-plus construction workers, the solar field is now 70% complete. Israel is hoping to shine a beacon on the importance [...]

In Israeli desert, world’s highest concentrated solar power tower looks to future

In the middle of southern Israel's desert, engineers are hard at work building the world's tallest solar tower, reflecting the country's high hopes for renewable energy. Once completed in late 2017, the Ashalim Tower will rise to 240 metres (787 feet), taller than Paris's Montparnasse Tower and London's Gherkin, according [...]

Innovations are Key to Record High Concentrated Solar Power Tower in Israel

Construction is set to begin this month on the world’s tallest solar tower—a 787-ft-high structure in Israel’s Negev desert that will supply 1% of the country’s power. Surrounded by 50,600 sun-tracking heliostats over 3.15 square kilometers, the tower will provide 121 MW of concentrating solar power (CSP) at the Ashalim [...]

Concentrated solar tower promotes Israel’s renewable energy drive

The tower, being built by Israel-based Megalim Solar Power, whose shareholders include General Electric, will be taller than other solar towers, enabling it to generate up to 121 megawatts of power. Due to be completed late next year at a cost of 3 billion shekels ($773 million), the facility will [...]
