    Redstone Concentrating Solar Plant

    ACCIONA is the sole partner being used to construct this solar thermal energy plant with a 100 MW tower in the province of Northern Cape, South Africa.

    The Redstone solar thermal energy project is the first of its kind in South Africa and is comprised of a CSP power plant that features molten salt energy storage technology in a tower configuration. The plant will have a capacity of 100 MW with 12 hours of energy storage at full load. It will have the ability to supply clean energy to over 200,000 homes in the region. Fueled entirely by the sun, the plant requires no backup fuel and will also use dry cooling for the energy generation cycle as a key component in minimizing the use of water.

    • Location: Northern Cape, South Africa
    • Client: ACWA Power
    • Capacity: 100 MWe
    • Contract type: EPC - Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Commissioning
    • Technology: CSP tower project with molten salt thermal storage
    • Year construction started: Planned for 2017
