First steam from the new SG4 500 m2 dish

Today the new SG4 Big Dish was used to produce steam for the first time. The receiver from the previous SG3 dish has been mounted on the new dish and connected to a water supply. The dish was placed on-sun and steam produced. Experiments are now being planned to obtain detailed thermal performance data.
