CSP projects miss deadlines in international market



Four of the five concentrated solar power projects in India, with a total capacity of 470 MW have missed the scheduled commissioning date, 9th May, and are running way behind project schedule.

The CSP potential in India is huge, with four CSP plants over 28 MW under construction, these projects are being built for the first time in India and now the government has decided to defer the penalties and extend by 10 months the deadline of commissioning the projects. The Godawari plant, that started commercial operations from June 19, was delayed by slow supplies and environmental conditions. These factors are an indicative of the challenges that the CSP industry face in several international markets.

South Africa is another country that has a high level of renewable energy potential. It has already allocated 200 MW of CSP projects and is allocating 200 MW more in a third bid window. But its renewable programme has been characterised by numerous delays and changes.

Due to all these international uncertainty, CSP Today has launched an international benchmarking guide to download for free at its website and is reuniting at CSP Today Enhanced Plant Engineering 2013 experienced CSP professionals from leading international companies like Cobra Energy, TSK, Astrom Technical Advisors or Tractebel GDF Suez, to debate and delve deep into the strategies that solve specific technical and market challenges, from design to operation optimization.
