What are industrial steam boilers used for in solar power plants?

Plants which transform solar energy to obtain heat, known as thermosolar plants, have gas or electric industrial steam boilers, which operate their steam turbines on an auxiliary basis.

The steam in these installations must be reheated until it reaches temperatures of 290 or 300 ºC.  However, as a general rule, the steam's temperature must reach 250 ºC for application in thermosolar power plants.

The boilers that ATTSU supplies to this increasingly vital sector are designed for operating outdoors, according to the needs of the new energy sources sector. The turbine is sealed to start producing green energy with the first ray of sunlight.

ATTSU manufactures and installs industrial steam boilers for thermosolar plants and combined cycle plants all over the world.
