CSP is a key player in the renewable energy market as it offers 100% solar dispatchable power. Tower projects with molten salt storage have been a key focus of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) projects, offering higher temperatures and conversion efficiencies. During the lifecycle of a CSP plant, molten salts experience thousands of large temperature changes and fluctuations. Thermal fatigue, thermal stress and corrosion are huge challenges when designing and procuring molten salt tanks and related equipment-
In this webinar, we examine how to ensure long-term system reliability, overcoming the main challenges when designing and operating CSP tower projects with molten salt storage:
- Consider the impact that molten salt corrosion can have on the lifecycle of the plant and safety of the whole balance of plants (BoP) system
- Learn what are the proven methods and techniques for predictive maintenance to ensure your project lasts in perfect condition beyond its expected lifetime.
- Find out about the bankability of these projects in the short to medium term and how ultimately, they can help add more renewables in the grid
