Parabolic trough power plants can make a significant contribution to a sustainable energy supply. Driven by the requirements of cost reduction and performance improvement progresses, the development of solar trough collectors continued steadily. Flagsol as a pioneer is substantially responsible for the current success of this technology. To maintain its strong market position in the parabolic trough technology, the HelioTrough® collector has been developed.
Goals for developing a new Collector:
Cost reduction by
- Increasing efficiency
- Increasing size
- Reducing number of parts (mirrors, Heat Collecting Elements (HCE), steel parts, drives, swivel joints, control systems etc.)
- Reduction of assembly and alignment costs
- Reduction of maintenance costs
- Increasing lifetime
The HelioTrough® parabolic trough collector can either be offered as a complete product, and / or licensed to third parties for construction.
