DVD Tecno S.r.l. engineered and supplied the instrumentation for the molten salts and steam cycles, as well as the main plant PLC together with its SCADA system, for the european project MATS ("Multipurpose Application by Thermodynamic Solar"). DVD Tecno S.r.l. also supported its Client during the installation of the supplied parts.Contact Us
The Multipurpose Application by Thermodynamic Solar (MATS Project) is a Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plant recently inaugurated in Borg El-Arab, about 40 km south-west of Alexandria, Egypt. The plant has been designed and developed thanks to the cooperation of the Italian reasearch agency ENEA, the Egyptian Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASRT), and numerous companies, including KT S.p.A. (our Client), which has been involved as process engineering contractor, with the main responsibility of coordinating the other companies partecipating in the project. The project has been funded by the European Union.
The plant is focused on the innovative CSP technology developed by ENEA as an improvement of its Solar Thermodynamic technology based on molten salts as heat transfer fluid. The objective of the plant is to combine the production of electric energy (1 MWe) and desalinated water (250 m3/day) from solar energy. The integration with a back-up fuel makes the system flexible and enables continuous power/water production.
DVD Tecno S.r.l. was in charge of the design and complete supply of the instrumentation and automation of the steam and molten salts cycles. In particular DVD Tecno S.r.l.:
