DEWA solar power plant (UAE): first molten salts injected into the receiver designed and supplied by John Cockerill

The DEWA solar thermal power plant in the Dubai desert reached another major milestone on 14 July 2022: the first salts were injected into the receiver designed and supplied by John Cockerill. Commissioning is continuing in order to reach 565°C at the receiver outlet. This molten salt technology, used as a heat transfer fluid, enables electricity to be generated 24 hours a day. Once the temperature of 565°C has been reached, thanks to 70,000 heliostats reflecting the sun’s rays to heat exchangers, the salts are stored for 15 hours, enabling electricity to be produced day and night at a stable and continuous power of 100 MW.

More information of projects will be available to CSP Focus Membership.
