Fully-automated production line to assemble solar steam generator NOVA-1.

As worldwide fossil fuel supply diminishes, the sun is becoming an increasingly valuable energy source. Novatec Solar’s patented solar steam generator is cutting-edge solar thermal energy generation technology.

Novatec Solar’s modular solar steam generator utilises Fresnel collector technology. It is an alternative of parabolic trough or solar tower technology, using almost flat glass mirrors which are arranged in parallel rows. Parallel lines of mirrors reflect solar energy onto a receiver in which water is vaporized. The solar generated steam can be directed to a steam turbine for power generation or used for other industrial heat applications, e.g. solar enhanced oil recovery.
