38 MW CSP plant in Greece

The plant will have a capacity of 38 MW and use the LPT 550 system from BrightSource Energy, an US based CSP plant developer. The LPT 550 is a power tower system where thousands of mirrors focus the sunlight to a central receiver that is mounted on a tower. The collected heat is then used, to generate steam for a conventional steam turbine which generates electricity. The plant will be build by NUR-MOH SA, a joint venture between Nur Energie and Motor Oil Hellas, one of Greeks largest companies. The plant will be located on the Greek island of Crete, which is not connected to the grid on the mainland.
Greece has a feed-in tariff in place since 2006. The tariff was raised last summer to about 285 €/MW. With an annual solar irradiation of about 2,400 kWh/m2 Crete provides good solar resources for CSP.
