Solving Water Issues for CSP Plants


Development and maintenance of SOLWATT webpage

This document will contain the description of the SOLWATT webpage that will be prepared in the first months of the project.

Relevant effects of water usage in STE plants and optimizer inputs/outputs defined

This report will contain a compilation of all effects concerning water usage in the plant relevant for consideration by the optimizer. For each effect, the input/output variables and the interdependency to be considered will be described. The resulting report reflects the common understanding on the models and optimizer functionality to be developed in the project.

Dissemination and Communication strategy document prepared

This document will contain the definition of the dissemination and communication strategy and tools to be used during the life of the project. All possible dissemination routes for the obtained results will be identified and used during the whole course of the project.

Systems study of CSP-related socio-economic and livelihood issues

This report will describe a framework which will be used to assess the socio-economic impact of CSP plants on local communities in T1.2 and T1.3

Sand Barrier candidate/pre-tested design for real scale test selected

This report describes the CFD and wind tunnel work to select a preferred dust barrier design.

Experimental campaign designed (Public)

This report will contain all the required information for accomplishing the installation of the technologies, performing of the on-site validation tests and assessing of the results obtained, including also details about what, who, when, where and how the testing will be done, the material definition (bill of material), assembly, installation, setting-up, testing, validation, and Gantt chart.
