Solar Tower Systems GmbH (STS) from Starnberg/ Germany illuminates a Norwegian community by sun mirrors
Residents of Rjukan, an industrial town in Norway, have grown accustomed to dark and gloomy winters. Shielded by the Gaustatoppen Mountains, the valley town is cut off from direct sunlight during five to six months of the year. Late last year Solar Tower Systems GmbH was commissioned by the municipality of Rjukan with the design, manufacture and installation of the so-called "Mirror Projects Solspeil ". Thanks to these newly installed mirrors, however, Rjukan will receive sunlight for the first time in the town's more than 100-year history.
On a hillside about 500 meters above the town, an expert team of Solar Tower Systems - with many years of experience in the field of solar thermal power plants, has-installed several heliostats being guided computerized to follow the course of the sun. STS Project Manager Joachim Maass is enthusiastic: We are pleased that our company was selected for the planning and execution of this exciting project. The environmental conditions were very challenging and the design of the overall system is compared to our main business very specific.
Solar Tower Systems GmbH well- known amongst experts for its expertise on heliostat technology, which is usually used for solar thermal power plants in very sunny areas like Arabia, North Africa and Australia.
