BISOLARRAIL: Development of disruptive multi-metal products for the railway and solar thermal industries


Projects co-financed by the Government of the Principality of Asturias through IDEPA and the Plan for Science, Technology and Innovation (PCTI), and the EU through the ERDF Funds

Renewable Energy


The main objective of the project is to explore the feasibility of developing new bimetallic products processed by hot rolling, for specific applications with high corrosion and wear resistance requirements, in the energy and transport sectors, respectively, with lower manufacturing, installation, maintenance and/or improved properties costs. With regard to the application of renewable energy, the aim is to manufacture a flat bimetallic product that is resistant to the operating conditions of salt tanks in solar thermal power plants, mainly corrosion due to exposure to molten salts, and high temperature (565ºC).
