European Solar Research Project MSLOOP

sbp is participating in the joint research project “MSLOOP 2.0” together with four European partners who combine extensive knowledge of CSP technology in the solar sector.

The aim of the project is to increase the economic efficiency of solar parabolic troughs using, for example, the Ultimate Trough®-collector technology developed by sbp sonne.

In the project, liquid salt will be used and tested as a heat transfer medium. On the way to further increasing the economic efficiency of solar thermal power plants, the use of liquid salt is a key issue. The use of the new technology would simultaneously increase the power plant’s output and mitigate the environmental risks associated with oil, the heat transfer medium commonly used to date.

More information about the project is available on the MSLOOP website.

The project is funded by the European Commission within the Fast Track to Innovation (H2020) program.
