Torresol Energy Select Honeywell to Optimize Thermo Solar Plants in Spain
Torresol Energy, a leader in the concentrated solar power (CSP) sector, has selected Honeywell's UniSim Operator Training Simulator (OTS) and business support planning tools to help optimize the performance of three of its thermo solar power plants in Spain.
Torresol Energy will also use Honeywell's UniSim OTS, to train the plants operators and engineers how to respond to a wide range of potential plant incidents, enabling them to react more quickly and diffuse issues before they occur. With UniSim Operations, Torresol will be able to identify, document and track changes to operational procedures and capture operator experience and best-practices as part of a sustainable operator competency plan.
Torresol Energy will use Honeywell's business support planning tools to create a model for operational performance of thermo solar power plants focussed around safe, reliable and efficient plant operation. The technology will be applied to three key projects sites:
- The innovative 19.9 MW Gemasolar plant, located near Seville
- Plants one and two of the 2x50 MW Valle facility, located in San José del Valle, near Cadiz.
According to Juan Ignacio Burgaleta, director of technology, Torresol Energy, they selected Honeywell for this project because Honeywell has demonstrated a strong understanding of Torresol Energy's business and of thermo solar technology processes. "Honeywell has also developed a compelling proposition for safe, reliable and efficient energy production," said Burgaleta.
