Fagioli has weighed, skidded and lifted a molten salt receiver (MSR) module and platforms at Dubai Solar Park in the UAE.

Fagioli was contracted to install the MSR module, weighing 1,641 tonnes, on top of the concentrating solar power (CSP) tower. At 222 m tall, Fagioli said that this is the highest CSP tower in the world.

The heavy lift specialist used 600-tonne capacity skid shoes and strand jacks for the operation, which took place during June last year.

Following the installation of the tower, Fagioli began the installation of the various platforms, ranging in weight from 50-400 tonnes. Strand jacks were deployed once again for these operations, in combination with a recoiler lifting system.

The installation of the platforms was completed on January 16, 2021.
