Solar Thermal Energy

For solar thermal power generation plants, we offer complete services in all project phases, from prefeasibility studies and evaluation of meteorological data up to commissioning and acceptance of facilities. Counting to our clients in this sector are, alongside project developers, investors and banks, also project owners, general contractors and technology suppliers.

We have built up our wealth of experience through many challenging projects, and this has made us one of the world’s leading engineering consultancy enterprises for solar thermal power plants. Since our first solar thermal project in 1977, up to now we have planned or assisted in the realization of concentrating solar power (CSP) projects in over thirty countries with a total rating of more than 5000 MW. For technically highly complex solar hybrid power plants, we are involved in virtually every project worldwide.

We bring our expertise in combining conventional with renewable technologies to bear when undertaking projects for solar seawater desalination, industrial process heat utilization and tertiary oil recovery.

Principal facility types:

  • Parabolic trough power plants
  • Linear Fresnel plants
  • Solar tower power plants
  • Solar hybrid power plants – integrated solar combined cycle (ISCC)
  • Solar seawater desalination
  • Solar process heat for industry and mineral oil extraction
  • Solar plants for heat and cold generation
