The pumps are to be built, installed and put into operation at Jodhpur, Radjhastan in western India, by the end of December 2012. These plants are the first large-scale power plants with salt tanks outside of Europe. The project has received the support of the Indian government. With over 250 days of sunshine a year, the border area offers the best solar radiation conditions and is to be developed into a major solar park.
