Fascinating and mysterious construction rises more recently, over the fields in Sanlucar la Mayor (Sanlucar la Mayor), near the center of Seville.
This miracle is called SOLUCAR PS10 – Europe’s first commercial solar thermal power plant is quite rare type – solar power tower- officially went into service March 30, 2011. Power station, built in Andalusia, is 11 megawatts.
Its principle is simple: the field of multiple heliostats – mirrors that track the movement of the sun, collects light and directs it to the top of a high tower, where a bright sunbeam turns water into steam. The steam runs through the pipes and in the end, turns a turbine connected to an electric generator.
The light from the hundreds of large mirror so bright that causes the light dust and moisture in the air, so that the rays are visible and attacking the beautiful white tower.
