CADE Soluciones de Ingeniería

El sistema consistirá en un circuito colector de cilindro parabólico de tamaño medio combinado con un almacenamiento de energía térmica de hormigón, y está diseñado experimentalmente para aplicaciones industriales que requieren calefacción o refrigeración las 24 horas.

CADE, in consortium with protarget AG, Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V. / German Aerospace Center (DLR), Solar-Institut Jülich of the Aachen University of Applied Sciences (SIJ), and Cyprus University of Technology (CUT), develops the first power generation plant based solely on solar thermal power to supply process heating along 24 hours a day.

The objective of EDITOR is to carry out industrial research that demonstrates and verifies the dispatchability and performance of a solar power system designed for continuous operation. The system will consist of a mid-sized parabolic trough collector loop combined with a concrete thermal energy storage and is experimentally designed for industrial applications requiring heating or cooling on a 24 hour basis.

The experimental solar thermal energy plant will be located in Cyprus, a country that features excellent solar resources.

The three years project not only involves the technical activities of constructing, commissioning and executing completely the solar power system, but will also cover commercial considerations, such as studying the feasibility of scale-up, identifying future customers, and communication regarding this important development with the potential market.

CADE will be responsible for, among other workpackages, the design, supply and start-up of thermal energy storage system based on concrete.

Kick-off meeting was held in Larnaca (Cyprus) on 22nd and 23rd February 2016.

EDITOR Project is financed by SOLAR-ERA.NET, a FP7 funded European network of national and regional funding organizations and RTD and innovation programmes in the field of solar power generation.

CADE (est. 2003) is a Spain-based company, expert provider of advanced engineering and consulting services in CSP sector worldwide as an specialist on design and engineering of equipment and plant systems, evaluation and optimization of operating commercial CSP plants, and consulting of failure evaluation and integrity on critic equipment.
