Telvent to implement distributed control system for thermosolar power plants

Madrid, April 12, 2011 — Telvent will design, install and manage the distributed control system for Abengoa's Solacor I and II thermosolar power plants in El Carpio, Cordoba, Spain.

With this Telvent solution, plant operators will have the ability to control and supervise all solar plant processes in accordance with the most current climate conditions. For example, Telvent's control technology will allow operators to manage the position of the parabolic troughs at each 50-MW plant to efficiently capture the sun's energy. This creates a more efficient operation and maximum power reliability for customers.

Telvent was selected for the project due to its reliability, adaptability and expertise in the solar energy field. This project marks the tenth Abengoa-owned commercial power plant in Spain for which Telvent has developed integrated control systems.
