Thanks to a spectrum selective revolutionary coating process, created by ENEA, ASE’s receiver tubes maximize solar radiation absorption and minimize thermal loss, reaching temperature higher than 550°C.
Japan’s leading engineering and construction firm announces that Chiyoda has reached Cooperation Agreement with an Italian company, Archimede Solar Energy ("ASE") to jointly explore business opportunities for concentrated solar power ("CSP (News – Alert)") plant projects in the Middle East and North African countries ("MENA") region.
ASE has experience in promoting grid scale concentrated solar power solutions fueled by alternative and renewable sources. The company is focused on the receiver tubes for solar concentrating systems utilizing a proprietary combination of solar thermal technologies and molten salt-based heat transfer fluid.
Chiyoda, headquartered in Yokohama Japan, an engineering, procurement and construction contractor on a global basis with a lot of project experiences in industrial plants such as petroleum, petrochemical, chemical, LNG and power facilities, not only desires to enter into CSP plant market on the basis of those experiences, but also intends to become an IPP developer utilizing ASE’s innovative molten salt CSP technology.
