The SCHOTT PTR®70 Receiver Platform

SCHOTT Solar CSP – Your partner for sustainable profitability

The receiver, being the key component of a CSP plant, has a decisive influence on the overall efficiency of the plant and has to withstand drastic temperature changes and mechanical stresses throughout its lifetime. The SCHOTT PTR®70 Receiver responds to this challenges: high solar absorptance, low thermal losses and a durable vacuum body.

SCHOTT introduces the 4th generation of receivers which collects the experience of more than 1 Million receivers installed in over 50 CSP projects worldwide.
