5 MW CPV solar power plant
Proposal for
Education City, Qatar


Client: Nur Energie - UK 2009 

Designers: Stedingk Industrial Design



The client required a concept for a showcase solar power plant for the Education City development in Qatar, using GreenVolts
Concentrated Photo-Voltaic (CPV) technology with 1600 ‘CarouSol’ units, each 6 meter diameter (below right). An idea was derived from the locally venerated Sidra tree for both the layout of the CPV units - for aerial viewing - and the visitor centre with observation tower. Service buildings extend laterraly.
