Parabolic trough technology
Parabolic trough technology consists of a series of parabolic mirrors arranged in horizontal rows that concentrate solar radiation in a central tube containing thermal oil. The hot oil is used to vaporize water, which, channeled to a steam turbine, drives a generator that injects electrical energy into the grid. Likewise, the excess power is used to heat molten salts and thus store the heat to continue to produce electricity at times of low solar radiation or at night.
SENER has completed 28 projects for plants of this kind and has developed its own trough system, SENERtrough®.

Central tower technology
SENER designed and built through to its start-up Gemasolar, the first utility scale power plant based on concentrated solar energy with central tower receiver technology and a molten salt storage system.
Thanks to its configuration, Gemasolar can continue to produce electricity for 15 hours without any sun, and therefore it is significantly more efficient than other thermosolar plants that are currently in commercial operation.
After the success of the Gemasolar plant, SENER has taken on the new challenge of designing and building the next generation of central tower plants, with 150 MWe capacity.
