After a few months of break due to the COVID-19 pandemia, the MOSAIC prototype construction has restarted during June 2020 in Sanguesa (CENER). As you can see from the picture, all five towers have been successfully erected. At the moment, work onsite is focused on the tracking system and related support cables. In the coming months, we will update the onsite construction development. Stay tuned!
MOSAIC Second Review Meeting Finalised
MOSAIC second review meeting was held on 4th and 5th September 2019 at CENER premises in Sarriguren (Spain). The first day was dedicated to the preparation of all the presentations for the official Review meeting. The second day was dedicated to the official Review meeting with MOSAIC Project officer Bernardo Abello, where the Consortium presented the status of the project. Furthermore, we visited in the afternoon the Sangüesa CENER facilities where the excavation to install the MOSAIC prototype has been started. Our thanks go to CENER for the excellent meeting organisation and for the preparation of this successful meeting!
MOSAIC concept presented at SolarPaces2018
Coordinator Cristobal Villasante presented the MOSAIC concept at the SolarPaces2018, through the oral presentation “MOSAIC, a new CSP plant concept for the highest concentration ratios at the lowest cost” (IK4-TEKNIKER and CENER) in the Central Receivers System session. A large and interested audience showed their interest and curiosity for the concept. Furthermore, the poster “Analysis of convective heat losses for a solar bowl helical receiver” from POLITO, CENER, and IK4-TEKNIKER, has been published in the poster session of the conference. Both publications will become the official reference material course of MOSAIC, which will be updated during the project lifespan.
