Sundrop Farm

ISC Consulting Engineers has been a subcontractor for Aalborg CSP's project in South Australia. The project is a solar energy system that produces renewable energy and fresh water for the sustainable operation of 200,000 m2 greenhouses.

The energy system is based on "concentrated solar energy" technology, where more than 51,500 m2 of mirrors collect and reflect solar rays up to the top of a 122 m high solar tower. The heat generated in the tower is used for several purposes - heating the greenhouses, desalinating seawater for irrigation, and producing electricity.

Our tasks

ISC conducted construction calculations for the 122 m high solar tower, wind tunnel tests, and reporting.
