Turbines

Pressure staged turbines similar to Kaplan Turbines used in hydro-electricity projects will be located in galleries built into the lower surrounding structure of the tower. The updraft effect from the tower will draw the heated air through the turbines to generate electricity.

Assuming a 45% turbine efficiency, we extract 381 MW day and night. We assume 200MW in our projections.


The SCT Solar Collector heats air from ambient (say) 35°C to over 80°C.


And drives air towards the tower through 32 10MW air turbines at the Tower base.


Before funneling the air upwards into the cyclone to extract water.


The  hot air rises day and night with very little drop in speed at night.



We co-locate biofuel farms and hydroponics under the Solar Collector.
