LUCETH e LUCEFP are CSP-F‘s solar collectors using Fresnel flat mirrors in order to concentrate solar irradiation and produce high temperature heat.
The Fresnel technology uses flat mirrors arranged in a matrix of rows and columns (module) to concentrate solar irradiation onto a receiver tube capable to heat up fluids and/or boil water, producing high-temperature heat. Generated steam is used for power generation or industrial processes.
The solar field is a modular and scalable system. Equipement and components are based on common materials, can be easily manufactured on site and installed with minimal effort.
CSP-F Fresnel technology has been extensively proven in several applications ranging from process heat production, biomass-solar hybrid system to standalone power plants.
The acronym CSP, the most used when speaking of concentrating solar systems, stands for Concentrating Solar Power.
Our key technology features
- Light and unbreakable mirrors
- Flexiblilty to any high-temperature fluid (steam, molten salt, oil)
- Easy-to-assembly and rapid components production
- Localised procurement and manufactoring of almost the whole solar field materials (flat mirrors, steel, metal sheet, etc.)
- Efficient land use
