Capital Riesgo Global invests US$125 million in Abengoa’s 280MW CSP plant


Abengoa has announced a collaboration with Capital Riesgo Global to develop the largest CSP plant to date. Abengoa is currently constructing the Arizona-based Solana project, which is expected to commence commercial production by summer 2013. Once completed, it will have a capacity of 280MW.

Capital Riesgo Global invested US$125 million in the project and will, in exchange, receive an equity stake in the project. The US Department of Energy (DOE) granted Abengoa a federal loan of US$1.45 billion in 2010 and the overall investment in the project is US$2,000 million.
Abengoa is currently constructing more than 1GW of PV plants worldwide.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
