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 [...]
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 [...]

Two Giant Israeli Concentrated Solar Power Plants Will Soon Provide Nearly 2 Percent Of The Country’s Electricity
On Sunday, Israel inked a $1 billion deal to build what will become the second 121-megawatt concentrated solar power plant under construction on a swath of country’s southern Negev desert.
Megalim Solar Power hosted a Cornerstone Ceremony in Israel to celebrate progress on the Ashalim concentrated solar power project, one of the largest of its kind in the world.
Megalim Solar Power Ltd. has hosted a cornerstone ceremony for its 121 MW Ashalim Plot B concentrated solar power (CSP) project in Israel's Negev Desert.
At 130MW, the first phase of the 250MW Ashalim Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) complex will be Israel’s biggest solar plant and one of the world’s largest CSP complexes.
Alstom and its project partners have obtained financing to build a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant in Israel.
The Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant, which the ministry said will be one of the largest of its kind, is expected to begin operation in the second half of 2017.
Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is a relatively young and growing industry. In 2010 Alstom cemented their partnership with BrightSource Energy.
Within three years, Israel will have one of the world's biggest concentrating solar power plants, with a capacity of 121 megawatts of electricity.
BrightSource and Alstom have approached local and international lenders about a financing for the Eu575 million ($743 million) Megalim CSP in Israel
The 121 MW BrightSource-Alstom Megalim plant, one of three projects selected under Israel’s Ashalim 250 megawatt total solar tender, will be located in the Ramat Negev Regional Council.
