Manzanares Pilot

Small Scale Pilot Plant

Solar Tower technology has been tested and proven with a successful small-scale pilot plant constructed in Manzanares Spain. The pilot project was the result of collaboration between the Spanish Government and a German engineering & design firm.

The plant operated for seven years between 1982 and 1989, and consistently generated 50kW output of green energy.

The pilot plant conclusively provided proof-of-concept and data for design modifications to achieve greater commercial and economic benefits associated with an increased scale of economy.
