The solar power station Puerto Errado 1 (PE 1) has an electrical output of 1.4 MW and is based on the Linear Fresnel Collector technology. The generated electricity has been fed into the local network since March 2009. The modular system Nova-1 allows a scaling of solar fields from one to several hundred MW. This is the first time that this system has been used in a commercial network. The power station is currently used to demonstrate Novatec’s superheating solar technology.
