In 2008, Aalborg CSP designed and supplied a complete solar tower receiver system for production of saturated steam.

The core design features of the solar tower receiver system are the natural circulation inside the boiler, the high steam purity, the high efficiency and neglectable electricity consumption. The main advantage of the overall system is that the steam is heated directly without any kind of heat transfer fluid.


Boiler type:   Receiver panel boiler
Design pressure:50 barg
Capacity:150T/h, 20MWe
