Mounting bridge for assembly of NOVA-1.

One key advantage of Novatec Solar’s technology is the use of standardised components and unique manufacturing techniques to produce primary reflectors and receivers in large volumes.

Automated tools used widely in the automotive industry are employed in the production process. Latest state-of-the-art manufacturing technology ensures accuracy and constant, high quality output. The glass mirrors and steel plates used in production are standard, low cost, readily available industrial products.

The manufacturing facility is scalable and can be established in close proximity to the project site to utilise local labour and minimise transportation cost. This also means local communities and economies benefit through job creation and economic flow on effects.

Logistical and transport advantages are a by-product of establishing manufacturing factories in target market regions close to the solar field. Special transport frames ensure that reflector components are delivered to the assembly site undamaged.
