Flabeg presents new mirror generation for Mena region
With its dimension of 1570 x 1900 mm, the new solar mirror RP4 for parabolic trough solar power plants covers nearly three square meters. Therewith RP4 is one-third larger than former mirrors for this application. RP4 is designed for the new Heliotrough collector.
Both, the inner and outer mirror has got the same dimensions. The larger collector units allow materials savings and a smaller solar field is necessary. With this, achieving competitiveness of solar-thermal technology with fossil-fuel power plants is one step closer, according to a Jan. 20 AMEinfo report.
