Vapor a partir de energía solar en Sudamérica

El día 21 de septiembre del 2010 el operador más grande a escala mundial de centrales eléctricas GdF Suez (Francia) y el fabricante de colectores solares Solar Power Group (Alemania) anunciaron una colaboración para un campo de energía solar en Chile. El proyecto va a demostrar la viabilidad de la conexión de un campo de colectores Fresnel a la planta de carbón existente en Mejillones, situado unos 60 km al norte de Antofagasta. El campo de colectores va a inyectar vapor sobrecalentado de altas temperaturas en el ciclo de vapor de la planta. 

Sustainable Heat & Power Europe GmbH ha suministrado e instalado la estación de medición de irradiación y presta servicios en los áreas de ingeniería y gestión del proyecto. La estación de medición de irradiación ya es el tercer sistema para la medición de irradiación directa que realizamos en Chile.

 

Waste to Power

In February 2010, Thai-German Carbon Co., Ltd., a joint venture with Sustainable Heat & Power Europe GmbH of Germany, secured the contract to develop carbon credits for a biogas project in the new Veerachai Nongpong Farm (a large-scale pig farm that is currently under construction). This contract, executed with VCF Group (the farm owner), marks TGC’s first carbon management project—and just two months after its company registration.

The project channels the farm’s manure volume and barn-flushing water into the biogas plant, where the materials will undergo anaerobic treament to produce immense power. Methane (which would otherwise be released to the atmosphere) is also captured and converted within the plant’s systems. Guascor biogas motors, supplied by Jiamphattana Energy International Co., Ltd. (its exclusive distributor for Thailand), will then combust the methane and generate electricity. The result? Potentially dangerous waste is transformed into a landmark source of regenerative energy.

The VCF Group, which already possesses one registered CDM project with the UNFCCC, wants to adopt a unique business strategy for the new Veerachai Nongpong Farm. In this case, the farm operator has opted to engage TGC to support the Group in all aspects of the project. This shall include all phases of the project’s process: initial conceptualisation, project assessment, project validation, verification services and brokerage of the emission reduction certificates once generated.
