CSP[edit]

It is especially the work within the CSP industry that has put Aalborg CSP on the map. With their work on CSP-plants around the world, the company has become a leading global player within steam generators for large-scale concentrated solar power plants.[6] Among other projects the company has contributed to the construction of large CSP plants in Spain. One of these plants were at the time considered to be the world’s most powerful solar tower.[7]
