The World’s Largest Solar Project with Compact Fresnel Technology Connected to Grid
by Monique Avila

India’s Reliance Power has successfully connected the world’s largest concentrated solar project (CSP) with compact linear fresnel reflector (CLFR) technology to the grid in India’s Jaisalmer District of Rajasthan, according to the company.

The 100MW CSP project is the largest investment ever taken in CSP technology by the private sector in India with a US$342 million (Rp 2,100 crore) price tag. The project’s debt financers include Asian Development Bank, Export-Import Bank of the United States, Axis Bank, and the Dutch development bank FMO.

Areva Solar, the US subsidiary of Areva SA of France, provided the CLFR technology, which causes the sunlight reflected to a system of tubes to boil the water inside the tubes to generate powerful steam. Reliance Power said the technology’s simple design will minimise environmental spill and land requirement.
