Aalborg CSP + Sojitz enter Indian market
Aalborg CSP is a leading manufacturer of development and supply of solar steam generating equipment for saturated and superheated steam. Sojitz is a general trading firm with a worldwide network of branch offices, subsidiaries and affiliated companies that are engaging in various industrial fields.
With Aalborg CSP's experience in large scale steam generators and Sojitz Corporation's unique knowledge of the trading industry and rich experience and great achievement in business with the Republic of India, we are aiming at becoming one of the key players supplying steam generator solutions for CSP plants on the Indian market.
Visit us at the 2nd Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Summit India 12–13 April; Aalborg CSP and Sojitz Corporation will be attending the summit. You can visit us at booth number 4 in the exhibition area. Mr. Jun Shimoda from Sojitz Corporation and Mr. Jan Jasper Haikens from Aalborg CSP will be present at our booth throughout the summit.
The Indian market is very exciting with its high ambitions on solar energy, for example the Solar India programme to generate 20,000MW solar power by 2022. Large parts of India have excellent solar resources which makes the land highly promising for the concentrated solar power technology.
India's energy consumption has been increasing at one of the fastest rates in the world due to population expansion and economic development, and therefore reliable energy sources are crucial. Using solar power to produce electricity will cut down on the use of fossil fuel and in that way reduce both the cost and the emission of carbon dioxide.
Aalborg CSP has delivered solar tower boiler solutions for both saturated and superheated steam with capacities of 20MWe as well as steam generators for parabolic trough plants with capacities of 50MWe to power plants in Europe.
The services from Aalborg CSP & Sojitz Corporation consist of design, delivery and commissioning of steam generators based on HTF by thermal oil to steam heat exchanging for CSP plants. The standard configurations of the steam generators are 25MWe, 50MWe and 70MWe. Other sizes are available on request.
The steam boiler is based on steam boiler technology rather than conventional kettle type heat exchangers. We have found that this type of steam boiler system combined with the innovative CSP technology makes a quality power plant with high efficiency and minimum downtime.
