The Astexol 2 parabolic trough solar thermal plant (CSP) has been in operation since 2012. This plant evacuates its energy to the transportation grid through the 220-kV Vaguadas substation.

This power plant is currently equipped with 112 SKAL-ET parabolic trough loops, with space reserved for more loops and the installation of molten salt storage tanks.

This plant produces enough solar electricity to meet the needs of 28,500 homes in Spain, avoiding the emission of 31,280 tons of CO2.
