Solar Process Steam for a Pharmaceutical Company in Jordan

Berger, Michael and Mokhtar, Marwan and Zahler, Christian and Al-Najami, Mahmoud and Krüger, Dirk and Hennecke, Klaus (2015) Solar Process Steam for a Pharmaceutical Company in Jordan. SolarPACES 2015, 13. - 16. Oktober 2015, Kapstadt, Südafrika.

Full text not available from this repository.


This paper presents details of the recent installation of a linear Fresnel collector to provide saturated steam for process heat usage through Direct Steam Generation (DSG) for industrial use in the Jordanian pharmaceuticals manufacturing company RAM Pharma, where first solar steam has been provided in March 2015. This commercial DSG project also represents the first solar DSG plant in MENA. During sunshine, the system achieves a solar fraction of 100 %, and the conventional steam boiler is not needed. In the evening the fossil fired backup takes over automatically and replaces the solar collector in operation. Operational experience, details of the control strategy, and measurement data are presented in the paper.
