Helioenergy 1 goes online

A second, identical power plant (Helioenergy 2) is still under construction. Construction work on the power plants began in summer 2010. Each power plant is equipped with a solar array of 360 ASTRØ collectors. Like in all other commercial parabolic trough power plants, synthetic oil is also used here as a heat transfer medium and electricity is generated using a conventional turbine. The power plant was built by Spanish energy provider, Abengoa, and its German counterpart Eon.
