Parabolic Trough Power Plant Godawari Green Energy Limited (GGEL)

The GGEL Solar Plant is a 50 MW solar thermal powerplant on base of the EuroTrough design. The collector field consists of 120 Loops respectively 5,760 single trough collector elements. One solar collector assembly (SCA) consists of 12 solar collector elements which are 12 m long each. The design was adapted to higher local wind loads.
schlaich bergermann und partner provided the EuroTrough technology on a licensing basis and actively assisted the technology transfer and the installation of the assembly line.

Parabolic Troughs

Proven state of the art for CSP

Over the years, sbp sonne developed and licensed three different types of parabolic trough collectors: the EuroTrough, the HelioTrough and the UltimateTrough. We are now focusing on the distribution and commercialization of the ‘HelioTrough’ and ‘UltimateTrough’, as these collector developments have been proven to significantly reduce costs and improve performance for large scale power plants.

The UltimateTrough collector for Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plants is the world’s largest and most advanced parabolic trough collector. Measurements indicate that efficiency of the UltimateTrough is over 10% higher as compared to the benchmark collector.
