SENER, in its ongoing commitment to innovation, has developed two systems to significantly reduce the cost of power in solar thermal plants. Firstly, the second generation of the parabolic trough system developed by the company, SENERtrough®-2. Secondly, a single tank thermal storage system with molten salt which makes it possible to combine the two tanks that are currently needed into one single tank.

Both developments, key for the future of solar thermal technology, ended the year 2012 having undergone a series of tests and continuous monitoring in the Valle 2 plant in San José del Valle, Cádiz (Spain).

Thus, both SENERtrough®-2 and the single tank system have been operational in a solar thermal plant for over a year. During this time, the two developments have been submitted to external companies for approval, closing the cycle necessary for its installation in future solar thermal projects in which SENER participates.
