Concentrating Solar Power System

Korea's first concentrating solar tower power system, which provides
high-efficiency environmentally safe energy, is located on a 20,300 m2 plot of
land and features a 50m tall tower. As the execution agency in this
demonstration project, Daesung Group has demonstrated its committed to the
development of sustainable energy as a leader in the improvement of
technology for low-carbon green growth initiatives.

Name Development of the 200 kW Solar Power Tower System
Period Dec. 2008 ~ Sep. 2011 (34 months)
Execution Agency Daesung Energy
Participants DIC, NanoCMS, MaxTECH
Consignment Agencies KIER, SNUT, Inha Univ., KNUT
Site Nearby the North Daegu IC, KOREA
Area 20,300 ㎡

There is a growing demand for renewable energy not just in Korea, but all over the world. Thus the purpose of this project was to
develop local technology that could be commercialized and exported to energy markets around the world.
Notable successes include:

  • Development of an air receiver with a hot air temperature of 700~1,000'c
  • Net solar-to-electricity efficiency of 13% or more
  • Development of high-efficiency and low cost heliostats

With the support of Korea's Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the city of Daegu, this project budgeted at 11.6 billion KRW
involved the design and construction of a 50m tall tower capable of generating 200kW on a 20,300 m2 plot of land located near the
north Daegu interchange. The tower type CSP generates electricity by using 450 heliostats to concentrate solar energy to produce
the heat source for the tower's generator where temperatures can reach 700~1000'c With the successful development of the
technology for this project's generation cycle, Korea now has its own proprietary CSP system technology.
