Around 10 commercial Concentrated Solar Power projects are now under development and construction in China, and some biddings for systems and components & materials purchasing had been completed and winners announced. CSP Focus has been keeping tracking on the biddings, and generating report on the results. Taking an overview on [...]
Rioglass Solar is capitalising on the budding rise of solar thermal applications to meet the ever-diversifying range of requirements across its global customer base Writer: Matthew Staff Project Manager: Thomas Arnold One decade may not seem like a long time when it comes to global industry development, but in [...]
Rioglass is preparing to deploy temperature-resistant receivers on utility-scale molten salt storage plants in a move set to boost competitiveness of parabolic trough technology, Jeroen Van Schijndel, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Rioglass, said. Thermal energy storage (TES) has become a key asset for CSP plants as developers look [...]
Rioglass introduces its next generation receiver and sets a new benchmark for Concentrated Solar Power output efficiency
Rioglass Solar is proud to introduce its cutting edge and unrivaled non-degradable receiver tube, the ‘UVAC X’. This next generation receivers provides our clients superior performance and sets a new benchmark for thermal heat production using parabolic trough technology. To date, when modeling the electricity production of a plant, project [...]
CNMC has greenlit Rioglass Solar’s planned acquisition of the Spanish subsidiary of Schott Solar CSP GmbH, including a factory in Aznalcollar city, Sevilla province. As announced in December, Rioglass Solar, which makes HCE receivers and parabolic mirrors for concentrated solar power (CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) installations, agreed to buy [...]
The 110-megawatt Concentrated Solar Power plant, the first of its kind in Israel, will produce thermo-solar electricity using the parabolic trough method.
The UVAC 7G can be manufactured with the standard 70 mm diameter (UVAC 7G) or with the larger diameter (90 mm) to fit greater aperture collectors (UVAC 90-7G).
Rioglass introduces its next generation “UVAC 70-7G” receiver tube and sets a new benchmark for solar thermal output efficiency.
Becoming Chinese and, thus, being placed in the core of the market which is expected to be the fastest growing in the world, was necessary to fulfill our role of global leading supplier of components for the CSP and CPV
The primary focus of project developers has been to improve the efficiency of their CSP installations while continuing to drive cost out of the process.
