Members of the European Erasmus Plus Project visit ISFOC

Members of the European Erasmus Plus Project have recently visited ISFOC. This Project is focused on teaching aspects related to renewable energies. Both the teachers and researchers belong to 3 European universities (Northumbria University at Newcastle, UK; Università Politecnica delle Marche at Ancona, Italy, and Castilla-La Mancha University at Ciudad Real, Spain) and to 5 Latin American universities (University Campus José Antonio Echeverría, CUJAE at Havana, and Universidad de Oriente at Santiago de Cuba, Cuba, Federal University of Itajubá and Federal University at Bahía, Brazil, and University of Santander, Colombia).

This visit is part of the scheduled project meetings that professors and researchers of all these universities, some of whom study solar energy, have maintained throughout this week in Ciudad Real, including the visit to the ISFOC facilities and laboratories in the final moments of this meeting.

Professors and researchers have had the opportunity to personally visit the ISFOC technical facilities: both its worldwide pioneering CPV plants, which have been in operation since 2008, and its climate laboratories, which are totally equipped for the qualification of CPV and PV components along with the Helios 3198 CPV solar simulator (S@V) available at ISFOC for the characterisation and evaluation of technologies.

They have been accompanied the whole time by specialized engineers from the centre who have been in charge of guiding them through the facilities. ISFOC technicians have also answered all the questions and doubts that have arisen regarding the technology. All this has taken place in a relaxed atmosphere, where opinions and impressions have been shared with the participants of the visit, who have shown great interest in ISFOC’s activities.
