CCP SOLAR THERMAL POWER PLANTS MAINTENANCE COURSE 

The solar thermal power plants maintenance course is a course addressed to professionals who work or want to work in the exploitation of CSP plans with CCP technology. The course studies the maintenance plan of a CSP plant, practices for the operation of that maintenance plan are carried out, the various techniques of predictive maintenance (thermography, vibration analysis, borescopic inspections…) and the principal failures and incidents that might occur in a CSP plant are analysed.
