The prototype at Cener facilities in Sangüesa is on its way towards its final state, as depicted in this video created by Increscendo:
Here is a brief overview of the last works carried out on the construction site:
- The mounting towers for the mobile elements and the oven have been erected.
- The mechanical, optical and electrical elements of the tracking system have been installed and are being tested.
- The innovative dummy hoses have been connected to the receiver.
- The meteorological station has been connected to the tracking system, and the DCS of the whole prototype has been updated to achieve a full control of the plant.
The next key step will be the installation of the field of the solar mirrors, along with the evaluation of a watering system for the mirrors.
