La centrale électrique solaire couvrant les besoins en énergie de SESAME a été inaugurée

SESAME BECOMES THE WORLD’S FIRST LARGE ACCELERATOR COMPLEX TO BE FULLY POWERED BY RENEWABLE ENERGY

"Today (26 February 2019), a ceremony was held to mark the official inauguration of the solar power plant of SESAME (Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East).

Constructed on grounds next to JAEC (Jordan Atomic Energy Commission) that is located some 30kms from SESAME, electricity from the solar power plant will be supplied by an on-grid photovoltaic system having a total power capacity of 6.48 MW, which will amply satisfy SESAME’s needs for several years.

Thanks to this power plant SESAME is now not only the first synchrotron light facility in the region, but also the world’s first large accelerator complex to be fully powered by renewable energy."
