Sulzer Pumps to supply Spanish, Indian CSP projects

Sulzer Pumps is to supply pumps for several concentrated solar power (CSP) projects in Spain and India, the Switzerland-based company announced on Tuesday.

The scope of supply for the orders to Sulzer includes the design, manufacture and installation of cooling water pumps, feed water pumps, condensate extraction pumps and auxiliary pump packages. The pumps will be manufactured and packaged from Sulzer’s global manufacturing network and will be installed in 2013 and 2014.

The company gave no specifics about which projects it would be supplying, but confirmed that it will significantly increase its share of the CSP pump market in India, which is embarking on a huge 1GW solar installation programme, known as the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).

The first phase of the JNNSM aims to install around 1GW of both photovoltaic and CSP projects by 2013, in an effort to secure an electricity supply and shore up the economy.

Meanwhile, Spain leads the way in the global CSP market, accounting for a massive 65% of total installed capacity. In 2011, Spain had reached over 1GW of installed CSP capacity.

Globally, Sulzer Pumps has supplied more than 550 pumps for central tower, parabolic trough, linear Fresnel and hybrid integrated solar combine cycle applications since 1985.
