Relevance for Eskom

Eskom recognises the imperative to diversify the existing fleet driven by a need to reduce the impact on the environment and ensuring a low carbon future.  This CSP plant is being developed for demonstration purposes with the aim of ensuring a full understanding of all technical, financial and operational risks associated with this technology before eventual full scale commercial replication in the Eskom fleet.  The project also aims to identify the challenges of meeting solar generation targets set by the Eskom business.  The focus will be on technology & plant performance, large scale energy storage optimisation & dispatchability, operability of the plant, CO2 emissions reduction ability, cost effectiveness and development of local industries to support CSP.
