ISCC Kuraymat

This page provides information on the ISCC project in Kuraymat, a concentrating solar power (CSP) project, with data organized by background, participants, and power plant configuration. Integrated Solar Combined-Cycle (ISCC) technology combines the benefits of solar energy with the benefits of a combined cycle. The solar resource partially substitutes the fossil fuel. The Kuraymat project has an overall capacity of 140 MW (120 MW combined cycle, 20 MW solar input).
