Abengoa Solar is a provider of technology solutions for sustainable development in the environment and energy sector. The company offers technologies that help in generating electricity from the sun, producing biofuels, recycling industrial waste, and desalinating seawater. The company operates through 2 business segments, namely, Engineering and Construction, and Concession-type Infrastructure. Through the Engineering and Construction segment, it offers projects for thermo-solar plants, conventional generation plants, solar-gas hybrid plants, and others. Besides, it is engaged in activities that are related to the development of water management technologies and solar thermal power solutions. The company offers solar power towers and parabolic troughs concentrated solar power technologies, along with molten salt thermal energy storage, in the concentrating solar power market. It offers concentrating solar power across all capacities. Europe’s first CSP 11 MW PS10 solar power plant was built by Abengoa Solar. The plant uses solar power tower technology for electricity generation and has a 30-minute storage capability. The world’s second solar power tower, PS20 of 20 MW with one-hour molten salt storage, was built by Abengoa Solar. South Africa’s first concentrated solar plant, the 100 MW Kaxu Solar, was constructed by Abengoa Solar; the plant has 2.5 hours of molten salt storage. Abengoa Solar also focuses on R&D for CSP technology. The company has its research center in Sanlucar la Mayor, Seville, Spain, for the development of photovoltaic technology and heat storage technology using molten salts and new materials. The company has been investing significantly in R&D. The company’s investment in technology research and development in 2018 increased to approximately USD 339 from USD 565 thousand in 2017. The company has operational presence in North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa.
