Telvent GIT S.A. has been selected by Abengoa to provide the distributed control system (DCS) and solar field control system for Abengoa's Mojave Solar Project, a concentrated solar power plant that will be located near Barstow, Calif.

Telvent says its DCS will give Abengoa operators a user-friendly interface to review information from the field and help streamline plant operations while maximizing efficiency and energy output. The solar field control system will coordinate the plant mirrors' movement in precise accordance with the sun's angle, the company adds. Concurrently, the system will manage communications between the controllers and the incoming field data.

“For the last decade, Telvent has worked closely with Abengoa on all of its solar energy projects,” says Ignacio Gonzalez, Telvent's chairman and CEO. “Our adaptable solutions help them operate some of the cleanest and largest power plants in the world, providing them with support and security for critical infrastructure.”
