SCHOTT continually optimizes its manufacturing of receivers for concentrated solar power (CSP) plants, and as a result contributed to the marketability of solar power to ensure that solar power plants will soon be able to compete with conventional forms of electricity in respect to cost. The company uses production principles from other fields such as the automotive industry and successfully employs these principles to manufacture solar receivers. More


SCHOTT Supplies Molten Salt Receivers
The Italian power company Enel will install molten salt receivers with technology from SCHOTT when modernizing certain parts of the world's largest molten salt solar power plant. The international technology group supplied around 450 so-called “High Temperature Molten Salt Receivers” for use in the Archimede solar power plant in Sicily this summer. With a capacity of approximately 5 MW, the Archimede project is currently the largest CSP plant that operates on the basis of molten salt technology. Moreover, ENEL and SCHOTT are working together on the EU project ARCHETYPE aimed at building a commercial 30 MW parabolic trough power plant that also employs molten salt technology. More
