SkyFuel's Parabolic Trough Technology
on July 19, 2010
The SkyTrough® is SkyFuel’s high-performance parabolic trough solar concentrator for use in utility-grade solar-thermal power plants for generating electricity or for industrial process heat applications.
The SkyTrough® uses lightweight, glass-free, slide-in reflective mirror panels made with ReflecTech® Mirror Film. These mirror panels and the supporting aluminum space frame are lightweight, easy to manufacture, ship and deploy and significantly reduce construction time and cost compared to those for a conventional glass-mirrored parabolic trough system.
