Nur-MOH has secured a 38MW electricity generation license from the Greek regulatory agency for Crete Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant on the island of Crete, Greece.

The solar power plant will feature BrightSource Energy’s proprietary LPT 550 solar technology system and will produce electricity for approximately 13,000 homes and reduce carbon emissions by 35,000 tons annually.

The developer Nur-MOH is a joint venture between Nur Energie, a power producer and developer active in the Mediterranean region, and Motor Oil Hellas (MOH).

Nur Energie founder and CEO Kevin Sara said that the company has selected BrightSource’s LPT 550 energy system because of the technology’s superior performance, low impact environmental design and ability to be customized to Crete’s unique energy load profile.
