Sopogy, Inc., the proprietary MicroCSP concentrating solar thermal energy system manufacturer, has signed an agreement for the development of a 50MW solar power plant using its MicroCSP technology in Toledo, Spain. The agreement is with solar project developer Inypsa Informes y Proyectos, S.A., a Spanish company, and Germany-based solar project financer Omniwatt. The plant is set to be completed by early December, 2010.
“We are excited to work with Inypsa and Omniwatt in bringing Sopogy’s MicroCSP system to the Spanish market,” said Darren Kimura, President and CEO of Sopogy. “Sopogy’s MicroCSP technologies have been designed for these unique markets by bringing advantages over traditional concentrating solar thermal including fast deployment, pre-engineered kits in the 1MW, 5MW and 10MW increments and use and support of local labor for on-site installation.”
