PS10
Location: Sevilla
Operator: Abengoa Solar
Configuration: 11 MW
Operation: 2007
T/G supplier: Thermodyn
EPC: Abengoa
Quick facts: The PS10 solar tower project in Sanlúcar la Mayor is designed to generate around 24.3 GWh/yr. All project activities were undertaken by subsidiaries of Abengoa Group with assistance from many different organizations including Ciemat, University of Seville Department of Energy-Thermodynamics Engineering, DLR, and Fichtner Solar. Groundbreaking was on 28 June 2004. The solar field has 624, two-axis tracking heliostats that concentrate solar radiation on a receiver placed on top of a 120m tower. There, solar energy is transferred to the working fluid, generating steam that is sent to a steam turbine.

PS20
Location: Sevilla
Operator: Abengoa Solar
Configuration: 20 MW
Operation: 2007
T/G supplier: Tosi
EPC: Abengoa, Smit Ingenieria
Quick facts: PS20 uses a solar field with 1,255 mirrored heliostats. Each heliostat reflects the solar radiation onto a receiver at the top of a 165m tower, producing steam to supply a T/G set. The plant went into operation on 27 Apr 2009 as the world's largest installation of its kind.

Solnova-1
Location: Sevilla
Operator: Abengoa Solar
Configuration: 50 MW
Operation: 2010
T/G supplier: Siemens
EPC: Abengoa
Quick facts: Abengoa brought Solnova-1 into commercial operation on 4 May 2010 at the Solúcar Platform following 3 days of testing. The new plant, the first of three new blocks planned for service in 2010, uses Abengoa’s ASTRO parabolic trough collector which ensures superior precision and efficiency thanks to an exclusive design and construction process. The system will be used in two 280-MW CSP plants planned for construction in the USA. Solnova-1 has 300,000m² of mirrors on a 115ha site. Solar radiation heats a working fluid in heat-absorbing pipes and this goes to a heat exchanger producing steam for a specially-designed turboset.
