Optimized water management
An overall water management concept for CSP plants will be elaborated covering the whole chain from sourcing via treatment to distribution. Simulation tools will be developed to support the development of the management plan. Particular solutions for centralized water treatment as well as decentralize water treatment systems for mirror cleaning which can be mounted on trucks or robots will be developed. Theoretical investigations and simulation studies will be supported and validated by laboratory tests on single components or sub-systems.
