Andasol 1: The largest solar power station officially inaugurated
On 1 July 2009 the solar-thermal power station Andasol 1, located in the Spanish province of Granada in Andalusia, was officially inaugurated. At the present time, Andasol 1 is the largest solar power station in the world. Researchers at the German Aerospace Centre (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) were heavily involved in the development of key technologies and identified the most suitable location with the help of various tools, including satellite data. They did this on behalf of Solar Millennium AG, the project development company. In addition, their measuring methods contributed towards the precision design of the parabolic trough collectors.
