Solarlite GmbH has been nominated for the Newcomer of the year

Duckwitz, (PresseBox) - CSP Today has announced the finalists of the CSP Today International Awards. The CSP Today Awards are awarded to companies that excel in the industry and truly deserve an award for great their efforts on getting CSP a bit further down the competitive route.

Solarlite GmbH has been selected as a finalist because of the revolutionizing idea to produce parabolic troughs made out of composite materials with high precision for mass-production and secondly with the ability to generate direct steam in place of evaporating thermal oil. This concept is more environmentally friendly and allows significant reductions of the total investment costs and levelized electricity cost.

The Awards Ceremony has been organized by CSP Today in conjunction with the 4th International Concentrated Solar Power Summit, which will take place in Sevilla from the 15-17 of November with over 700 attendees.

Over 700 people will get together in Sevilla next month to network & discuss with other experts of the CSP industry. More than 50 top level speakers are due to speak at the event, including senior executives from ACS Cobra, Acciona, Abengoa, AREVA, Siemens, BrightSource Energy, Torresol, Dii, Abener, CIEMAT-PSA, Flagsol, ENEL, Cargo Power and other leading developers and EPCs in the CSP industry.

This year, a dedicated expo will have more than 30 stands including leading service providers such as: AREVA, Siemens, Schubert & Salzer, DOW, Novatec Biosol, Rioglass, Hydro, Durferrit, SPX, Agencia IDEA, Foster Wheeler, Tyco, BK Aalborg, Albatros, Tekniker, Lainsa, Bosch Group, Samson, Sertemo, Hef-durferrit, Wika, Rioglass, Thermal Ingenering and many more.

Solarlite GmbH

The Solarlite 4600 parabolic trough is a newly developed highly efficient product that can generate temperatures of up to 400 °C. Each panel has an aperture width of 4.6 m and is made of composite materials combined with an efficient thinglass mirror. This mirror reflects up to 95% of the sun's radiation onto the receiver pipe positioned at the ideal focus of the parabolic mirror. Water passing through the receiver pipe is heated up by the concentrated reflected sun radiation and is converted into steam within a controlled process. A turbine generator produces electricity. Residual heat can be used for other applications such as seawater desalination or absorption cooling.
