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.


Flowserve: Pumping Systems Order at Nevada Solar Power Plant

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012 von admin

Flowserve Corporation announced it received an order for key pumping systems at the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project near Tonopah, Nevada. The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project is a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant that utilizes mirrors to focus the sun’s energy on a central receiver that sits atop of a tower. The 110-megawatt (MW) solar energy project’s “molten salt power tower” design captures and stores the sun’s thermal energy. The liquid molten salt, which is pumped to the receiver atop the tower where it captures the thermal energy, is then piped down to tanks to store the energy until it’s needed. The stored heat is then used to generate steam to power a standard steam turbine and generate electricity.
