ST. LOUIS, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Solutia Inc. announced today that it will be supplying Therminol VP-1 synthetic heat transfer fluid to a new 470 MW hybrid solar plant in Ain-Ben-Mathar, Morocco and a 170 MW hybrid solar plant in Hassi R'Mel, Algeria.

Both plants have 20 MW each of power output capacity from solar thermal oil-based parabolic trough collector fields and are being constructed by Abener. They are currently slated to begin producing electricity in 2010.
 
Abener, a pioneer in the hybrid solar power plant construction industry and a subsidiary of Spanish Abengoa Group, selected Therminol VP-1 due to its superior ability to meet demanding requirements of high temperature systems and Therminol's more than 20 years of experience in solar projects.
