FLABEG announces the successful completion of solar mirror delivery for the Bokpoort Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project in Northern Cape Province, South Africa.
FLABEG FE GmbH, the international market leader and manufacturer of solar mirrors, is proud to announce the successful completion of solar mirror delivery for the Bokpoort Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project in Northern Cape Province, South Africa. More than 240.000 of annealed RP3 mirrors have been supplied by FLABEG FE for the parabolic trough plant. FLABEG FE’s unique bending and coating technologies ensure the plant’s superior precision of curvature and highest solar reflectivity.
The 50 MW project is owned by ACWA Solafrica Bokpoort Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Power Plant (Pty) Ltd., established under South African Law. With 9 hours of thermal energy storage, the Bokpoort CSP project will be the Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant with the world’s longest amount of thermal storage.
As a pioneer in the field of solar technology with a worldwide network, FLABEG FE produces flat and curved mirrors for all CSP technologies – Parabolic Trough, Dish Stirling, Power Tower and Linear Fresnel Systems, as well as customized mirrors for CPV applications. Thanks to the latest bending and coating technologies, FLABEG FE solar mirrors provide the highest degree of precision and reflectance.
The relevant quality parameter for accuracy, the focus deviation (FDx) today is lower than 6 mm – an improvement of more than 1 mm compared to the already outstanding quality set by FLABEG FE mirrors in 2013. In combination with a solar reflectivity of more than 94.5% FLABEG FE again sets the benchmark for the CSP industry.
