News
The first thermodynamic solar power plant using Molten Salts as Heat Transfer Fluid, working with ASE'S receivers, has been inaugurated in the Italian town Priolo Gargallo (Syracuse, Sicily).
News
Participating in the ceremony together with the CEO and General Manager of Enel, Fulvio Conti, was, among others, the Minister for the Environment, Stefania Prestigiacomo.
Enel press release:

Archimede plant is the first in the world to use molten salts as heat transfer fluid and to integrate a combined-cycle gas facility and a solar thermal power plant for electricity generation.

Archimede can collect and store the heat of the sun for many hours, allowing the electricity generation at night or in overcast conditions.

The capacity of the solar plant is about 5 MW, representing an annual savings of 2,100 tonnes of oil equivalent, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by about 3,250 tonnes.

The solar thermal power plant consists of a field of about 30,000 square meters of mirrors (the parabolic collectors) that concentrate sunlight onto 5,4 meters of pipe carrying the molten salts fluid.
