Category: 2012 , Visits

It was, Wednesday, twenty first of November 2012 when IEEE Alexandria Student Branch organized an educational visit to one of the largest power plants in Egypt and the Middle East which is “Kuraymat Solar Thermal Power Plant”.

The power plant depends on a hybrid technology, where it works on solar panels during day, and natural gas during night when the load is at its peak. The plant generates close to 150 Mega-Watts at its peak. The project contains 130,000 square meters of reflective mirrors installed in the solar field in the form of rows of parabolic trough mirrors of several hundreds of meters long.
