Solar concentrator for solar power plants

The principle of these plants is to concentrate the sun’s rays to a high performance sensor which transforms the light's flow into electricity.

An initial lens guides the rays to a second lens - the concentrator - placed on the sensor, which handles the concentration.

As it is subject to an intense flow of light, the concentrator must handle very high temperatures without losing its physical and optical properties, as these facilities must maintain their performance for many years.

The stability, resistance and transparency of glass make it the ideal material for this type of application.

Thanks to its optical development capacity, Holophane can provide support with the design of this type of device, and then ensure production at competitive costs.
