4th CSP Focus MENA 2019 Conference & Expo

As the unique professional event for global CSP peers focusing on MENA region, CSP Focus MENA will also have most of the key players to present:

  • MENA: Saudi Electricity Company, MASEN, Shams Power, REPDO, KISR, Egypt New and Renewable Energy Authority
  • EU&USA: Abengoa, SENER, ENGIE, Empresarios Agrupados, TSK Flagsol, BrightSource Energy, EDF
  • China: Power China, China Shipbuilding New Power, SEPCO3, SUPCON Solar, Royal Tech CSP
  • Detailed introduction of the event:
  • Masdar Institute Solar Platform, MISP

Managed by Khalifa University of Science and Technology, allows for concentrating solar power and thermal energy storage technologies to be developed on a wider scale by providing access to high-performance CSP research and demonstration infrastructure.

A 20-metre-high tower is surrounded by a solar field of 33 heliostat mirrors in three concentric rings which adjust their angle to track the movement of the sun while directing the reflected light to the top of the tower. Lining the top of the tower is a 45-mirror array which redirects the light from the heliostats towards a receiver at the tower’s base. The facility is being used to test reflector technologies, absorbed tubes, heat transfer fluids, mirrors and a variety of components used in the CSP industry.

* Mr. Nicolas Calve, Assistant Professor of Khalifa University and Chair of the Masdar Institute Solar Platform will be speaking at CSP Focus MENA 2019 Jun.26-27.

  • 100MW Shams 1 Parabolic Trough CSP Plant

Shams 1 was the largest renewable energy project in operation in the Middle East when launched in 2013, and the first large-scale CSP plant inthat region.

It occupies 2.5 square kilometersand has a capacity of 100 megawatts. The solar field has 768 parabolic trough collectors to generate clean, renewable electricity.

Shams 1 directly contributes toward Abu Dhabi’s target of 7 percent power-generation capacity via renewable energy by the year 2020. The plant also is helping the United Arab Emirates diversify its energy mix and reduce the country’s carbon footprint. The plant displaces about 175,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year, which is equivalent to planting 1.5 million trees or removing 15,000 cars from Abu Dhabi’s roads.

* The project owner Shams Power Company senior executives led by General Manager Majed Al Awadhi will be attending CSP Focus MENA 2019 Jun.26-27.

  • ACWA Power, Dubai Office
