Shc liquidating trust
Direct steam production, 50,000 litres of diesel saved per year and the advantage of the Italian incentive scheme for renewable heat: All these favourable conditions allowed a small dairy in Sardinia to choose a concentrated solar thermal plant with Fresnel collectors for generating 200 °C steam.
The steam is used to supply heat to the industrial processes for cheese production.
After half the project period had been over, the UNDP was able to present satisfactory results: The scheme has already helped implement 59 projects with a surface area of 16,373 m².
The pie chart shows the shares of different applications in the overall collector area.
Ghaisas is not only the Director of the School of Energy Studies, University of Pune, but is also responsible for the new testing site.
The photo shows the guests invited to the opening of the testing centre on 22 July 2014, including Dr Ghaisas (sixth from right) and Tarun Kapoor, Joint Secretary for Solar at the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (sixth from left).
After the Hawaiian manufacturer of parabolic trough systems, Sopogy, has stopped operations, its assets are now being liquidated as well.A 30 k W pilot reactor, including storage, is planned to be constructed and analysed in CRNS’s solar furnace (see the photo above).A mirror field will heat up the reactor particles placed in the receiver tower to between 900 and 950 °C for calcination.The largest share, 59 % (9,614 m²), is made up of demonstration projects in process heat or solar cooling.
has been feeding into the district cooling system of the MTN Group at its headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Even energy-intensive, high-temperature industrial processes can be supplied by solar thermal systems if concentrating solar technologies are used.
