DLR and Évora University inaugurate unique test facility in Portugal.
Thursday, 28 April 2022
Solar thermal power plants use concentrated sunlight to first generate heat and then electricity. They are already in use today in particularly sunny regions, such as Spain, the USA or Chile. To further advance this technology and make it more competitive, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR), together with the Portuguese University of Évora and European industrial partners, has built and commissioned a unique test facility. The Évora Molten Salt Platform (EMSP) is one of the world's first plants to use molten salt instead of thermal oil as a heat transfer medium. The official inauguration took place on 28 April 2022 in the presence of representatives of the project partners and the Portuguese and German governments.
