S20 Parabolic Troughs

Technology

The S20 solar parabolic troughs consist of a mirror which, when oriented toward the sun, concentrates rays on a target in order to increase its temperature. The target consists of an evacuated tube, in which a thermal fluid circulates. This heated fluid is then used to transfer heat to an energy-intensive process.

The solar troughs are equipped with a single-axis tracking device which allows them to follow the sun’s trajectory throughout the day, ensuring an optimal concentration of solar radiation. The system is also made to withstand non-ideal weather conditions, including rain, snow, and strong wind.

The S20 should be prioritized when ground surface is available, as it allows for lower construction, installation and maintenance costs. A ground system also allows for larger mirrors to be installed, which in clear sky conditions can lead to a superior output.
