Israel's Megalim solar thermal power plant starts operations

Wed 10th April, 2019 12:56pm
TEL AVIV, April 10 (Reuters) - The Megalim solar thermal
power plant, a joint venture of BrightSource  BRSE.O , GE
Renewable Energy  GE.N  and the Noy Fund, said on Wednesday it
has begun commercial operation in Israel's Negev desert.
    The 3 billion shekel ($839 million) project was announced in
2008 and construction began at the end of 2014 under the
leadership of GE Renewable Energy. The technology uses 50,600
mirrors spread over a 3 square kilometre site.
    Megalim's thermo-solar station will provide electricity to
supply about 50,000 households at peak. It is one of three
facilities in Ashalim that are expected to produce about 2
percent of Israel's electricity capacity.
