ALSOLEN designs, builds and operates hybrid solar power plants of medium and large power capacity combining photovoltaic and CSP technology.
Depending on their power, ALSOLEN’s solar plants can be intended for multiple uses:
- Feeding isolated areas simultaneously, in electricity, drinkable water, cold and heat
- Producing electricity to be injected stably into the grid
- Generating heat for industrial needs
ALSOLEN develops also energy efficiency solutions, in particular absorption chiller units that value industrial waste heat.
ALSOLEN, technology provider, acts as a turnkey supplier of hybrid solar plants and absorption chiller units, providing global services such as:
- Design Engineering
- Construction and commissioning
- Operation and maintenance
