In the desert in the south of Oman, solar steam is cheaper than gas-produced one. State-owned Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) commissioned Californian Glasspoint to install the world’s largest solar steam producing plant, Miraah, next to the Amal West oilfield. Construction of the concentrating solar thermal collector field of 1 GWth [...]
A procurement tender for a large-scale solar energy project in Oman is set to be floated this year. The two locations in Dakhiliyah Governorate - Adam and Manah - have been identified as prospective sites for the establishment of a grid-connected large-scale renewable energy scheme based on a combination of [...]
Oman’s plans to set up the world’s largest Concentrated Solar Power plant at its Amal field has prompted interest from Solarlite CSP Technology.
One gigawatt concentrating solar thermal project for oil production establishes oil industry as the next major market for solar energy.
Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) would build the Middle East's largest solar power plant in a $600 million deal with California's GlassPoint Solar to reduce pressure on its natural gas reserves.
Miraah (meaning mirror in Arabic) will be a 1,021 megawatt solar thermal facility in south Oman, harnessing the sun’s rays to produce steam.
Oman’s Concentrated Solar Power drive draws German interest Oman’s plans to set up the world’s largest Concentrated Solar Power plant at its Amal field has prompted interest from Solarlite CSP Technology. Dr Joachim Kruger, managing director at Solarlite, recently visited Muscat to highlight the benefits of direct steam generation in [...]
The Independent Power Project (IPP) is based on a combination of photovoltaic and concentrated solar power technologies.
Name a real-world, non-subsidized application in which concentrated solar power (CSP) could competitively replace natural gas in an enormous, emerging market.
The solar EOR project substantially reduces consumption of natural gas in EOR projects, which can be diverted for priority areas such as power generation, industrial projects and liquefied natural gas projects for export
Oman could emerge as a regional leader in concentrated solar power (CSP) technology after Middle East's first solar enhanced oil recovery (EOR) project at PDO’s Amal West field in southern Oman became a success.
Aspects of desalination using concentrated solar power (CSP) are to be researched on Caledonian College of Engineering (CCE) in Oman .
The Algerian gas and electricity company, CEEG, recently invited prequalifications for a new concentrated solar power (“CSP”) programme in Algeria.
