With the benefit of its long standing experience in steam generators, CMI Energy also provides equipment for high capacity thermo-solar electric power stations.
CMI Energy designs steam generators for concentrating solar thermal power plants using the “solar tower” technique. Installed at the top of the tower, CMI Energy’s receivers, real heart of the plant, collect the energy from the sun reflected by numerous individually controlled mirrors (or heliostats) located on the ground. The collected energy is either directly used in steam turbine production or stored in a heat transfer fluid such as oil or molten thermal salts.
Patents have been taken out for these developments.
Further to the design and supply of this kind of steam generators, CMI’s expertise in power generation also includes:
