IRESEN

The European Union-funded ORC-PLUS project aimed to develop an innovative Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system optimized for concentrating solar power (CSP) plants in the 1-5 MWe size. The Project aimed to increase the dispatchability and number of productive hours of a solar CSP field, regardless of irradiation hours, using an ORC system.

Client name:
IRESEN – ORC PLUS PILOT PROJECT

Plant Location: BENGUERIR, MOROCCO

Date of implementation:
2016-2019

Plant size:
1.2 MWe

Application:
CONCENTRATED SOLAR POWER

 

Solar field inlet temperature:
180°C

 

Solar field outlet temperature:
300 °C

Heat transfer fluid type:
mineral oil

The consortium was coordinated by ENEA and made by a total of 6 partners from 3 different European countries plus 1 international partner from Morocco, IRESEN. EXERGY in partnership with Enerray was involved in the pre-industrial scale pilot demonstrator and provided the ORC module utilizing the Radial Outflow Turbine and an air-cooled condensing system.
The plant was inaugurated on 24 September 2019 with a ceremony and site visit organized by the Consortium.
