CSP

Concentrated Solar Power

Turboden units allow to convert the heat collected by solar collectors into electricity through an efficient thermodynamic cycle. Concentrated Solar Power systems with the ORC technology of Turboden can be cost-effective in the range up to 20 MW electric per single shaft.
