What is the Enhanced Solar Collector?

Our solar collectors have been enhanced, overcoming persistent problems with CSP technology, and now deliver the best performance at the lowest cost.

The Enhanced Solar Collector is a modular unit, 12 meters long, that focuses the heat of the sun to produce reliable, high-temperature steam. The key element in the collector, the receiver tube, is fixed in position at the focal point of the parabola, which uses its own solar-powered driver to track the sun. The parabola simply moves around the tube, heating our water-based heat transfer fluid to temperatures over 500 degrees. The collectors use Brenmiller’s floating field concept; a system of rails that eliminates the need for leveling and minimizes habitat destruction. Designed from the ground up to avoid the pitfalls of CSP technology, our solar collector is the most complete solution on the market.
