Make efficient use of solar energy with KSB

The challenge for solar thermal power stations is to make efficient use of solar energy. Drawing on many years’ experience in power plant engineering, KSB provides reliable solutions for parabolic trough systems, linear fresnel plants and solar power towers. Solarfeld

KSB's offering for Concentrated Solar Power plants (CSP):

In concentrated solar power applications, the heat transfer fluids used reach extremely high temperatures. In addition, the systems are frequently switched on and off. The high-performance pumps and valves from KSB cope well with these conditions and are ideally suited to applications in solar thermal power stations.

KSB is the ideal partner for consultants, engineering contractors and operators of solar thermal power plants. For the diverse concentrated solar power applications, KSB offers a complete range of services, including:

  • Planning
  • Production
  • Installation
  • Commissioning/start-up
  • Servicing/Maintenance
  • Repair


KSB pumps and valves for parabolic trough systems

In parabolic trough systems, the heat transfer fluid is usually thermal oil, which can reach temperatures of up to 400°C. Many parabolic trough systems additionally use molten salt to store energy. KSB meets these challenges with high-performance pumps and valves for pumping and controlling the flow of:

  • Heat transfer fluids
  • Feed water
  • Condensate
  • Cooling water


KSB pumps and valves for solar power towers

In solar power towers, pumps and valves have to cope with high pressures and high temperatures of up to 650°C. KSB supplies highly specialised pumps and valves for solar power towers, as well as reliable solutions specifically tailored to these systems. They are suitable for:

  • Heat transfer fluids
  • Feed water
  • Condensate
  • Cooling water
