Parabolic trough solar concentrator

Facility managerMr Johannes Pottas
Solar trough

The Solar Thermal Group operates a trough-concentrator test bed that consists of a rotating horizontal platform onto which a 3.5 m2 horizontal axis tracking trough unit is mounted. This system allows two axis sun-tracking, so that short modules of trough systems, which would normally be used in a long single axis tracking configuration, can be tested.
