Solar power towers
In the renewable energy sector, we have a wide range of experience from constructing two solar power towers in Seville for the company Abengoa Solar and from constructing the first solar thermal power plant in Latin America, with 10,600 mirrors in the Atacama desert. To construct this solar power tower, we slid the 214-m tall, reinforced concrete shaft.
Along with the slipform system, we hoisted a large, auxiliary structure weighing almost 200 tonnes that covered a large part of the interior surface of the tower (almost 1000 m2). At the same time, this allowed them to be lifted together using the slipform system. 2 tower cranes, 3 devices to lift concrete, containers to be used as a cafeteria and 2 chemical toilets for personnel.
While constructing the concentrated solar power towers, we designed, projected, and executed the entire job. We also directed the work, providing turnkey solutions for this type of construction.
Other essential elements in producing renewable energy, such as wind turbine towers and other solar power towers, also form part of our portfolio. Many of the R&D&I developments we make are related with this sector.
