Arrays of parabolic troughs

The Hassi R'Mel integrated solar combined cycle power station is a hybrid power station near Hassi R'Mel in Algeria. The plant combines a 25 MW parabolic trough concentrating solar power array, covering an area of over 180,000 m2, in conjunction with a 130 MW combined cycle gas turbine plant, so cutting carbon emissions compared to a traditional power station.[1] The output from the solar array will be used in the steam turbine.

The construction contract was signed on January 5, 2007[1] and the plant is to be developed by New Energy Algeria (NEAL),[2] a joint venture between Sonatrach Sonelgaz and SIM.

The station began producing electricity in June 2011. It was inaugurated July 14, 2011.[3]
