Solar Power Facility With Energy Storage In Crescent Dunes
Cobra Thermosolar Plants Inc., who is responsible for the whole Tonopah Solar Energy Project, has awarded a contract to Emerson Process Management to apply its Ovation expert control system at the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project near Tonopah, Nevada.
The project, which is being developed by Tonopah Solar Energy LLC, an affiliate of SolarReserve LLC, is expected to produce enough clean, renewable electricity to power more than 75,000 homes during peak electricity demand.
The Crescent Dunes facility will use SolarReserve’s concentrated solar power (CSP) technology, with a central receiver tower and integrated energy storage technology that was developed by Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne.
