As a member of the MSLOOP innovation project consortium, CADE has recently participated in a workshop and discussion session in Madrid to disseminate the results of this project.
Under the topic of “MSLOOP 2.0: Key elements for the new solar thermal energy plants”, main industry actors, plant owners and investigating scientist related to the project met at the Complutense University of Madrid.

MSLOOP started in November 2016 and has been funded by the European Commission under the Fast Track to Innovation Programme (H2020) that promotes close-to-the-market innovation activities. In this framework, the project has aimed to validate a business opportunity by developing a cost-effective solar field for CSP Parabolic Trough Power Plants using optimized ternary molten salts as heat transfer fluid with an innovative hybridization system.
The result of the project has been a new solution of a CSP commercial plant with at least a 20% LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) reduction. This plant is able to provide firm and dispatchable electricity through a disruptive hybrid plant concept and is even more environmentally sustainable.
CADE has played a relevant role in the definition of the solar salt field pre-heating and drainage systems. CADE has been part of the MSLOOP consortium together with COBRA, SCHLAICH BERGERMANN PARTNER, ARCHIMEDE SOLAR and UNIVERSIDAD COMPLUTENSE DE MADRID.
