MOSAIC is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme coordinated by TEKNIKER. It aims to design, manufacture and validate an innovative CSP concept with low implementation costs at the highest plant efficiencies which will reduce the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE).

It will be updated with the ...MORE
- Jun 23The MOSAIC project has reached a new important milestone: the first access of the receiver to the oven for heating-up procedure testing. On 15th June, the prototype site was ready for this manoeuvre, which allows the receiver to be placed inside the oven for heating process or to prevent high temperature losses from the receiver (during night, for example). The complete ...MORE
