Abengoa Gets $33.6 Million U.S. Exim Loan to Buy Dow Solar Fluid

Sept. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Abengoa SA, the Spanish developer of solar-thermal power plants, will receive $33.6 million in loans from the U.S. Export-Import Bank to buy Dow Chemical Co. heat-transfer fluids for projects on two continents.

The liquids produced by Midland, Michigan-based Dow will be used at two plants in Spain and one in South Africa, according to an e-mailed statement today from the Washington-based bank.

Abengoa, based in Seville, Spain, operates two solar-thermal plants in Logrosan, Spain, and is building two in South Africa’s Northern Cape province, according to the statement. The plants use mirrors to focus sunlight onto tubes containing a heat-absorbing transfer fluid, which drives a steam turbine to produce electricity.
