Solar Steam Generation: ECOTHERM set on the use of renewable energies

The solar steam generation is designed to save energy costs and reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. ECOTHERM offers a complete solar steam system for the industry.

Together with the company Fresnex GmbH, ECOTHERM enabled the integration of a 200 m2 solar field into an existing steam system. Fresnex with the innovative technology of the mirror modules and ECOTHERM with the knowledge in the field of steam generation.

The solar steam system is designed to save energy costs and reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. The main application area is the substitution of oil and gas as fuel for existing steam boilers in production companies. The primary energy is solar energy. The choice of material has always seen the environmental aspect of (raw material) production and recycling.

ECOTHERM offers a complete solar steam system for the industry, with a reduction of up to 30% of the oil and gas consumption of existing steam boilers. The system is 25% cheaper compared to competitors. In addition to the environmentally relevant aspects, a solar field reduces the dependence of strongly changing raw material prices on fossil fuels.

Function

  • Sunrays are concentrated by moving mirrors in the «receiver».
  • Water in the receiver evaporates.
  • Steam can be generated up to 250 degrees.
  • The generated steam can be integrated into existing steam systems.
  • Mirrors are moving along with the sun by motor.

Advantages

  • Reduction of energy costs
  • Material saving by patented mirror support
  • Low roof load
  • Complete pre-assebled modules
  • Easy installation
  • Good return
