To revolutionize the economics and performance of solar thermal, we had to super-charge every part of the underlying technology.
Here, we offer a closer look at the individual components that each help increase the output, safety, and reliability of our solar fields.
These innovations have been developed and optimized over several years by our engineering team, enabling us to deliver our one-of-a-kind solutions in practically any environment.
Heliac’s solar thermal solutions present a real and financially attractive alternative to natural gas heating. In addition, the cost of supply is known and constant.
Our solar thermal solutions can be easily integrated into existing heat consuming systems, which eliminates the need for costly storage.
Our solar thermal revolution has the potential to eliminate a third of the world’s carbon emissions.
Our core team of engineers has developed and tested a range of innovations, drastically improving the yield and financial viability of solar thermal solutions. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to learn how we can increase the performance of your installation.
Unlike traditional curved-lens technology, the Heliac Solar Tracker uses flat transparent lenses attached to the glass.
The lenses concentrate incoming irradiation into a single high-intensity beam that flows onto the receiver, which is placed just behind the glass. Each lens in the eight-lens panel concentrates sunlight by a factor of 70.
Each panel consists of eight high-efficiency lenses.
The foundation is vibrated into the ground on a single point. The ease of installation keeps installation costs low. Other benefits include minimal land preparation and a small operational footprint.
The dynamic panels follow the sun’s position in two dimensions to keep the lenses at an optimal angle at all times.
The dual-axis tracking mechanism increases the heat output of each panel while also reducing the unit cost of energy, the so-called Levelized Cost of Heat (LCoH).
The premium fit-for-purpose solar receiver is made to withstand temperatures up to 550 °C (1,020 °F). When Heat is transferred through the receivers, it’s absorbed by the circulating water.
Each receiver raises the water temperature by 1-2 °C. Once the desired temperature is reached, the heat is delivered into the end-user’s process.
