Flabeg presents new mirror generation for Mena region

With its dimension of 1570 x 1900 mm, the new solar mirror RP4 for parabolic trough solar power plants covers nearly three square meters.

Therewith RP4 is one-third larger than former mirrors for this application. RP4 is designed for the new Heliotrough collector.

Both, the inner and outer mirror has got the same dimensions. The larger collector units allow materials savings and a smaller solar field is necessary. With this, achieving competitiveness of solar-thermal technology with fossil-fuel power plants is one step closer.

The Integrated Solar Combined Cycle Power Project El Kureimat, Egypt, is equipped with FLABEG Solar Mirrors. This project is to increase the share of solar-based electricity in the Egyptian energy generation thereby contributing to the Government's objective of diversifying electric power production. The global development objective of the project is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from anthropogenic sources by increasing the market share of low greenhouse gas emitting technologies.
