Solar Tower Prototype

The Project

The Prototype


2007 Annual Report


Solar Tower technology has been tested and proven with a successful small-scale pilot plant constructed in Manzanares Spain. The pilot project was the result of collaboration between the Spanish Government and the German designers, Schlaich Bergermann and Partner.
The plant operated for seven years between 1982 and 1989, and consistently generated 50kW output of green energy.
The pilot plant conclusively proved the concept works and provided data for design modifications to achieve greater commercial and economic benefits associated with an increased scale of economy.
