CSP with molten salts
Manchasol, Ciudad Real, Spain
In order to achieve this objective COBRA is leading the MSLOOP 2.0 project in conjunction with a pioneering consortium which includes the major links in the supply chain necessary to take this technology to the commercial market. To go beyond the current phase and raise the present prototype from TRL6 to TRL9, the MSLOOP 2.0 project has fixed the following specific objectives:
- Research and development to details level, improvements in all components of the existing prototype: salts, piping, structures, auxiliary systems and operation in conjunction with HYSOL.
- Carry out tests to optimize plant operations and verify the theoretical results previously carried out.
- Certification of the prototype prior to upscaling to commercial standards.
- Demonstrate the financial viability of the technology for later implementation in commercial plants.
Within the consortium COBRA leads the management of the project, the assembly of new improvements, operation and systems testing, commercial operating planning and the circulation of results with a special interest in the commercial potential of the technology. Furthermore COBRA supervises and channels the improvements proposed by the participating partners for the development of system components and the upscaling of these for commercial purposes.
