– German Aerospace Center (DLR) ) is Germany’s primary research center for CSP technology, covering aspects from component testing to the erection and operation of large-scale test facilities. Together with UEvora and TSK Flagsol, DLR erects the Evora Molten Salt Platform.

– CSP Services GmbH is a specialized engineering company, founded as spin-off company of DLR. Expert consulting, due diligence, and feasibility studies are based on the long experience and technological knowhow in international R&D and many commercial projects. CSPS assist their clients to decrease risks, increase project performance, and gain competitiveness.

– DUCTOLUX SL, an Extremaduran project engineering company founded in 2008, focused in industrial engineering. Sensorization, monitorization and analytical capacity oriented to different sectors. Specialized in power infrastructures. At present, it is directed to the thematic of sensorization research based on the developing technology of digital twins.

– ENEA is the Italian key research center for CSP, having developed an innovative technology based on parabolic troughs using molten salt mixtures as heat transfer and thermal storage medium, and built and operated some of the most relevant experimental facilities worldwide for the full-scale testing of CSP linear systems.

– Rioglass Solar has acquired the Schott Solar receiver tubes factory in Spain including its complete know-how of more than 10 years, IP and its technical team. Rioglass has a recognized leadership in HCE manufacturing and its receivers tube are operating in all the most important CSP plants all over the world.

– TSK Flagsol (est. 2013) represents entities that will build commercial molten-salt troughs. The roots go back into the 1980s. The Technology Department is headed by Dr. Mark Schmitz who is working for 20 years in CSP-specific-R&D. TSK Flagsol is part of the Spanish TSK group, one of the leading EPC contractors for turnkey construction of parabolic trough power plants.

– Universidad Complutense de Madrid has over 20 years of leading experience in the fields of molten salts as storage medium, oxidation, high-temperature corrosion, hot corrosion, and protective coatings.

– University of Évora, through its Renewable Energies Chair established in 2010 and led by Dr. Pedro Horta (PI), leads the Portuguese National Research Infrastructure in Solar Energy Concentration (INIESC). Part of this is the Évora Molten Salt Platform (EMSP) owned by UEVORA and exploited in cooperation with DLR. Besides participation with specialized EMSP manpower and facilities for the testing of critical components and plant operation, UEVORA role will focus on the development of the virtual solar field-based control process.

– University of Extremadura has experience in materials engineering and associated risk analysis. The contributions of UEX will be mainly in WP1, WP3 and WP4, focused on the study of corrosion and degradation of materials, the development of mitigation measures in non-standard situations of operation, and analysis of failure modes, effects and criticality. Antonio Diaz Parralejo will coordinate UEX’s activities, who has a large experience in R&D&I projects as coordinator and researcher.
