Tulip Shaped Solar Plants to be Installed in Ethiopia


tulip-solar-hybrid AORA Solar has presaged that it will begin construction of its solar-biogas power plants in Ethiopia. Construction of the foremost pilot plant will start by mid-2015. Ethiopia’s Man of Water, Irrigation and Energy has stated that ” AORA’s unique solar-hybrid technology is exciting and well-suited to provide both energy and heat to support local cost-effective development in off-grid rural locations in Ethiopia.” AORA currently already has operative sites in Samar, Israel and Almeria, S in. Scroll down for photos and video. What is AORA’s Tulip Combination System? A lens in the tulip-shaped tower receives concentrated solar streaks that are reflected off of 50 mirrors. Behind the lens, the 1000 Celsius temperature is old to heat the pressurized air, resulting in a hot pressurized gas. This gas is then used to crack the blades of a turbine to generate electricity. The mirrors are synchronized to constantly on the sun’s rays, directing the light toward the tower’s lens at all times. tulip-solar-hybrid-plant During cloudy meteorological conditions or nightfall, the tower’s turbine automatically switch to using biofuels or accustomed fuels to heat the air inside and power the turbine. This allows the castle to continue producing energy 24/7. Unlike conventional solar thermal approaches that use steam to drive large turbines, the Tulip requires alone 8% of the amount of water, making it perfect for desert regions.
