FG.de implements revolutionary CSP technology

ABB has launched what it is calling a new concept for turnkey concentrating solar power plants based on a 'low-cost, efficient and highly scalable technology that uses considerably less material, land and water than any other CSP technology'. It is manufacturing its new package in conjunction with Novatec Solar, a company in which it is a 35% shareholder. The two companies have now made their first joint sale. It is in the South African CSP market where ABB has signed an agreement with FG Emvelo, an independent solar power plant company, to develop a number of solar facilities at Karoshoek Solar Valley in Northern Cape province.
