The new Algerian plant will generate electricity from both solar energy and natural gas.
The 150 MW hybrid solar / gas plant is based in Hassi R 'Mel. According to Abengoa, it is the first solar plant in Algeria.
Abengoa was responsible for the engineering, design and start-up of the plant, which consists of a natural gas combined cycle plant with a solar field of 224 parabolic trough solar collectors with the capacity to produce up to 25 MW of energy.
The combined cycle plant utilises Abengoaâ€™s refrigeration technology which uses steam condensers and large ventilators to condense the water and re-inject it into the cycle.
It is the second hybrid solar / gas plant built by Abengoa. The other, located in Ain-Beni-Mathar (Morocco), has a 470 MW capacity and was opened in May.
