Parabolic trough plant Samca, La Florida and La Dehesa, Badajoz, Spain.
La Florida and La Dehesa are two 50MWe CSP plants each. These plants are located in the municipality of Alvarado (Badajoz) and La Garrovilla (Badajoz), respectively. The plants use thermal storage of solar energy by means of molten salt tanks. The technology of these two plants is SENERtrough® parabolic trough collectors.
SENER has carried out engineering work on the central island, including the storage system, the power block and HTF collectors system.
The electrical generator is joined to a steam condensation turbine set in a new turbine building. The plant uses solar field control by sectors and for each loop of solar collectors. The transfer of thermal energy charge/discharge is carried out by means of three salt/oil heat exchangers based on newest technology.
