Parabolic trough power plant Solar Island of ISCC Kuraymat

The hybrid power plant uses both natural gas and solar power to produce a total output of 150 MW electrical power and can therefore operate 24 hours a day. The solar field consists of parabolic trough collectors with a total mirror aparture area of 130,000 square meters. Each solar collector assembly (SCA) consists of 12 solar collector elements (SCEs) which are 12 m long each.

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.
