Flagsol Developing New Parabolic Trough Collectors


Flagsol GmbH, a subsidiary of Solar Millennium AG, has developed a new generation of parabolic trough collectors that are larger, more cost-effective to assemble and more efficient than previous designs.

Flagsol says it is currently assembling a collector unit with which to test the assembly concept and to verify the geometric precision. Once these tests are concluded, the new collectors will be installed in an existing commercial parabolic trough power station to assess their performance and deployment capability under real conditions.

‘With the new generation of collectors, we are setting the standards for efficiency and cost-reduction in parabolic trough technology,’ comments Dr. Henner Gladen, Solar Millennium's technology director.
