dc.description.abstractIn 2008, following its R&D strategy roadmap for Concentrated Solar Power, Abengoa designed, built and tested a unique Molten Salts pilot plant at the representative scale of 8 MWhth, coupled with a trough oil loop. The objectives of this project were based on evaluating the technology at a scale at which the results are sufficiently representative of the real circumstances facing a commercial plant that utilizes this storage technology. To this end, the MS-TES plant was brought into operation on January 19th, 2009, been the first demo plant of indirect double tank storage in operation in the world. Key points such a material corrosion, analysis of possible leakage points, calculation of performance or true efficiency of the storage (including a thorough assessment of thermal losses) and analysis of plant operation are the lines that have been analysed at this plant. Operational aspects such as the mechanical assembling, the pre-heating, the filling up and plant performance were deeply addressed. Key components as the storage tanks, the heat exchanger, the molten salts pumps, the heat-tracing systems or valves and instrumentation were tested. In this first paper, the description and commissioning of the plant is presented together a set of lessons learnt to be applied at the commercial plant scale.ca_ES
dc.description.sponsorshipThe research leading to these results has received funding from Spanish government (Fondo tecnológico IDI-20090393, ConSOLida CENIT2008-1005). The work is partially funded by the Spanish government (ENE2008-06687-C02-01, ENE2011-28269-C03-02, ENE2011-22722). The authors would like to thank the Catalan Government for the quality accreditation given to their research group GREA (2014 SGR 123) and research group DIOPMA (2014 SGR 1543).
