The Emirate of Abu Dhabi, on the Persian Gulf with its sizable oil and gas deposits coupled with high solar radiation, offers ideal conditions for deployment of this environmentally-friendly power station technology. German Aerospace Center (DLR) scientists were able to demonstrate a similar hybrid solar-powered gas turbine system (230kW) at the Almeria Parabolic Trough Solar Energy Collector.
