Titan tracker develops a Stirling dish concentrator that achieves high performance and significant cost reductions for utility-scale Concentrating Solar Power

Titan Tracker, the technology firm based in Spain specialising in manufacturing and marketing dual-axis solar trackers, has announced that it has developed a Stirling dish concentrator (125-129 STIRLING) specifically designed for utility-scale Concentrating Solar Power.

Each structure is comprised of two parabolic dishes with a highly reflective mirrored surface measuring 65.4 square metres This new development shares the advantages of the concept patented by Titan Tracker which were successfully applied for high levels of concentration, i.e. extreme accuracy (greater than 0.01º) and significant reliability thanks to its geometry and continuous tracking, which avoids peaks in stress produced by thousands of starts and stops needed in mounted-pole trackers.

According to Titan Tracker, the cost efficiency of this dish concentrator will make it possible to construction utility-scale solar plants at a reasonable cost. Titan Tracker is offering licensing agreements to local manufacturers, developers or EPC firms interested in this technology.

The new product will be launched for the first time at Intersolar (USA) in San Francisco next month.
