Solar hybrid

Solar thermal power plants offer the option of building hybrid power plants to get a variety of advantages.

Key benefits we bring include reduced capital and operating expenditures for the solar plant, and additional revenue from the sale of power and from renewable energy tariffs.

Solar thermal and diesel generation is being considered in the mining sector, where solar could provide power during the daytime and diesel generation could be used as the backup for nighttime operation. Some of the electrical network can be shared.

With the use of solar thermal and combined-cycle gas turbines, steam generated by the solar plant can be used in the steam turbine associated with the combined-cycle gas turbine plant.


We can offer our expertise in the following areas:

  • Solar thermal plant setup
  • Combined-cycle gas turbine plant development
  • Integration of the two plants
  • Integration of steam cycles


  • Feasibility and technical studies
  • Technology assessment
  • Due diligence
  • Risk assessment
  • Lender’s engineering services
  • Planning and permitting
  • Site access and supervision
  • Detailed design
  • Project development and management
