Concentrated Solar power

|

Concentrated solar power (CSP) plants are increasingly being built in the world’s sunbelt to provide utility-scale renewable electricity as well as industrial process heat. One key benefit of CSP is the availability of mature thermal energy storage, which enables power generation even when the sun does not shine. 

ERK applies its unique design expertise from other thermal systems to CSP equipment, thus maximising component performance, decreasing design risk, and shortening design times. 

In addition to ERK’s design competence, our extensive licensee network can provide these components to solar markets worldwide with a high local content and at the highest quality.
