Study for Integrated CSP Plant for Desalination and Enhanced Oil Recovery (70 MW thermal)
Subject of the study was a process simulation of the proposed integrated concentrating solar power plant (CSP) for production of steam, power & fresh water from sea water for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). For that purpose different CSP technologies have been analysedregarding their suitability for the considered integrated CSP plant. The produced thermal energy, by solar field and diesel fired backup boiler, is used in different applications in the plant. Main energy consumers are steam production for EOR oil well steam injection, heating steam for desalination unit producing make-up water for steam cycle and mirror wash water, and live steam for steam turbine.The power plant concept has been optimized to efficiently generate the required energy supply, with the aim to achieve a high solar share in steam generation with the lowest levelized cost of steam.
