John Cockerill's solar receiver installed at Chile's Cerro Dominador CSP plant

The 110 MW Cerro Dominador solar thermal project, owned by EIG Global Energy Partners and built by Acciona and AUSTELA's member Abengoa in the Atacama Desert in Chile, has just achieved one of the key milestones of its construction: the raising and installation of the 2300 tonnes John Cockerill Energy's solar receiver at 220 meters high. The receiver was assembled at the bottom of the tower and then lifted using 16 hydraulic jacks.
