Fresnel Solar Steam Generator - A solar solution for the generation of process steam at industrial facilities

Fresnel solar steam generator concentrates sunlight to produce steam as needed.

The solar collector is composed of uniaxially tracked mirror rows that automatically concentrate the solar rays onto an absorption tube, which is fixed above the mirrors. Water is circulated inside the absorber tube to collect the heat being then converted into steam. The Fresnel collector is constructed in modules that are connected in series to increase the power output according to the costumer's needs. Fresnel Solar Steam Generator can provide temperatures up to 400 ºC and cover a large share of the industrial heat demand which has steam as the heat carrier for several processes.
