Novatec Solar to enter South African CSP market

FG Emvelo is a joint venture between FG.de, a German group of companies and Emvelo Projects, a pan-African company, with headquarters in Johannesburg and recently acquired a 340 square kilometer site with high DNI (direct normal irradiance). The plants will use the highly efficient and cost-effective ABB-Novatec Solar turnkey concept for CSP plants.

This is achieved through a patented solar boiler for direct steam generation based on innovative linear Fresnel technology. The collectors use flat glass mirrors to reflect solar energy onto a receiver in which water is vaporized directly to produce superheated steam at temperatures of 500 degrees Celsius. The direct steam technology operates without thermo oil or any other toxic heat transfer medium. Differentiating benefits of the concept include the automated mass production of key components in local production facilities, a fast and accurate assembly process, highly efficient land use, and a robotic cleaning system that uses very little water.
