Ministry of Environment Selects Babcock-Hitachi K.K to Develop CSP Technology
Sep 26 14
Babcock-Hitachi K.K. has been contracted by Ministry of the Environment to develop the technology for a concentrating solar power (CSP) system as one of its 2014 projects to develop and verify technologies for enhancing measures to reduce carbon dioxide (CO 2) emissions. The contract calls for BHK to develop a low-cost, highly operational solar power generation system. MHPS will also participate, and after the two companies integrate effective October 1, MHPS will carry on the contracted work in full. CSP is a system in which a large area of sunlight is focused on a small area in order to generate high-temperature steam which is used to drive a steam turbine, to generate power. The cost factor is critical to the achievement of a viable system, and under the contracted project BHK and MHPS will target the development and verification of a low-cost solar thermal collecting system -- key to overcoming the cost impediment -- as well as development of optimal technology for the total system with power generation equipment, including element verification of the high-temperature heat storage system. The period will be three years. Plans call for a verification facility for the low-cost solar thermal collecting system to be constructed at MHPS's Yokohama Works (Honmoku Area), with commencement of test operation of the new system slated for 2016. Through this project MHPS and BHK will undertake the development of a system combining HSTS technology and high-temperature heat storage technology, aiming for the establishment of CSP technology offering the advantages of low cost and superior operability.
