General Electric (GE), as responsible for the engineering, acquisition and construction (EPC) of the Ashalim thermo solar plant, has commissioned and trusted MMYPEM to carry on with the jobs at Ashalim Plot-B. The solar thermal power plant is one of the largest in the world in its category.
MMYPEM has returned to the Ashalim Plot-B plant to support the works at that stop.
The Ashalim thermo solar plant Plot-B has been built in the western Negev desert, approximately 35 km south of the city of Be’er Sheva. It is a 121-megawatt solar complex that uses mirrors to focus the sun’s power on the solar receiver on top of the power pylons.
The electricity generated in Ashalim will be enough to supply 120,000 homes with clean energy.
The complex will avoid 110,000 tons of CO2 emissions each year throughout its life.
