Our projects – our worldwide presence
LIDDELL – solar steam integration into a coal-fired power station
In August 2010, FRENELL won a competitive EPC tender process for the construction and integration of a turnkey solar field into the Liddell coal-fired power station located in New South Wales, Australia. The aim of the project was to use solar-generated steam to reduce the carbon footprint of the plant. The solar field was successfully handed over to the customer in May 2012.
PE2 – 30 MW FRENELL power plant in southern Spain
In 2010, FRENELL closed financing for its 30 MW PE2 solar power plant. FRENELL attracted a group of Swiss utilities, led by EBL (Electra Basel Land) as equity providers and acted as single head EPC contractor for the turnkey installation of the Plant. Following completion and handover in 2012, FRENELL assumed operation and maintenance of the power plant for further three years. The use of air cooled condensers to minimise the water consumption of CSP power plants and the omission of natural gas co-firing are unique features till today.
Nowadays PE2 looks back on10 years uninterrupted power generation at a constantly high level of performance.
