Linamar To Supply Stirling Energy Systems’ SunCatcher Power Conversion Units


Stirling Energy Systems (SES) and Linamar Corp. have reached an agreement by which Linamar will make its first shipment of SES' power conversion unit (PCU) to the Maricopa Solar plant, which is currently under construction in Peoria, Ariz. This is the first phase of the launch of the PCU and the overall SunCatcher system.

Maricopa Solar, which is the first commercial-scale solar plant to utilize the SunCatcher technology, will be operated by SES' sister company, Tessera Solar, and will provide 1.5 MW of power to the grid with 60 SunCatcher units.

According to the companies, the SunCatcher is designed to minimize both cost and land use and has environmental advantages, including zero water use for power production, minimal grading and trenching requirements, and no excavation for foundations.
