Solar Towers

Solar Tower Design & Engineering

The Power Tower System

Electricity generation, through Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), is produced using receivers located on top of a tall reinforced concrete tower. The tower must be designed to support a major load at its apex, and must be constructed within the allowable parameters to achieve optimal aiming of the heliostats surrounding the tower.

Becoming involved with our clients during the early stages of the project planning and design process is key to achieving the most efficient design possible for the overall project.

We’re able to execute all design activities related to solar tower construction including:

  • Architectural Design
  • Structural Design
  • Detailing

Use of the Latest Technology for
Structural Analysis and Design 
Our engineering and technical experts utilize finite element (FE) analysis software to develop the design of these specialized structures. We use specific software packages to carry out different elements of the design

Mechanical Scopes of Work

In addition to the design and construction of the concentrated solar power (CSP) tower, we are able to offer our clients the option to provide many other mechanical scopes of work inside and outside of the tower.


  • Design & Engineering for Piping Supports
  • Assembly of Piping and Plate Supports Inside the Tower
  • Assembly of cable trays and wires Inside the Tower
  • Lifting of panel boxes & transfers, Insulation, Trace, and Wires Inside the Tower
  • Installation of Permanent Hoists
  • Repairs to Heat Shield on the Receiver
  • Repairs to the Hot Salt Tank
  • Replacement of Superheater
  • Design, Supply, and Install New Platforms
  • Miscellaneous Repairs to Evaporator, Piping, and Heater Bay

We are the industry leader for the design and construction of reinforced concrete solar power towers for CSP plants.  Responsible for building the first operational solar tower in the world, we offer more than a decade of experience offering in-house design and construction services of solar towers.
