Torresol Energy, a company engaged in the concentrated solar power (CSP) sector, has selected IFS applications to manage its engineering projects and to maintain its solar thermal energy plants.

Torresol Energy is now developing two projects in Cadiz and Seville, Spain, with cylindrical-parabolic trough collectors technology.

The company will add an overall productive capacity of 67MW and produce 460GWh/year, the equivalent of the average consumption of 65,000 homes.

The implementation of IFS applications by Torresol Energy will be carried out in two major phases and during a period of approximately nine months.

The project will also integrate IFS solutions with the SCADA systems of Torresol Energy to enable projects to be managed throughout their lifecycle from quotation, planning and building of assets to the operation and maintenance of these assets, regardless of their location.

IFS is a public company that develops, supplies and implements IFS applications, a component-based extended ERP suite built on SOA technology.
