The event will be followed by a site visit to the CSP plant “El Tesoro”, giving attendees the opportunity not only to see the first CSP operational plant in Latin America, but also to see how a mine operates. The 14 MWt parabolic trough plant is the first of a kind and a benchmark for mining companies worldwide.
