Hi everyone,

We are starting a CSP company in Spain. I'm coming to this community for suggestions and advice. We have already developed a financial plan and will be using parabolic trough technology. Any suggestions are welcomed! Let me know what you think.

What is your method of ballasting?

How many MW do these plants produce, on average?

Since you are claiming desalinization, what are you doing with the salts?

Why do you consider carbon dioxide 'dirty'?

What are the maintenance costs?

If these systems are cost effective why do you need donations?

Mark, parabolic trough systems are hot water generators. If you have enough sunlight this water can convert to steam and be used to power a steam power plant. An efficiency of 48% is usually considered very good for a power plant when the boiler is directly adjacent to the turbine so that there is little heat loss between them.

But these trough systems have very long runs and you can expect efficiencies much nearer 25% if that high. And they are extremely sensitive to daytime temperatures.

My guess is that this is very likely a boondoggle.
