Rioglass Introduces its New Large Aperture Trough Receiver

Rioglass, the world leader in the production of the highest quality reflectors and receivers for the Concentrated Solar Power and Concentrated Photovoltaic markets is proud to introduce its cutting edge and unrivaled 90mm diameter receiver tube, the UVAC 90. This next generation of receiver provides our clients superior solar heat absorption with reduced heat losses, and sets a new benchmark for thermal heat production using parabolic trough technology. The Xina project being constructed in South Africa, will be the first industrial plant fitted with this product.

The primary focus of project developers has been to improve the efficiency of their CSP installations while continuing to drive cost out of the process. One of the methods used to achieve this objective is through the use of larger aperture troughs which enables more energy to be concentrated onto the receiver, hence increasing the energy output per unit. Once again, Rioglass has responded to the needs of the market by developing this larger UVAC 90 receiver which assures maximum energy absorption from the larger troughs.
