The project objective is the installation of a solar thermal generator of the fresnel type for steam production to be used in idustrial applications and electrical generation. The used methodology is the design, construction and testing of a generator prototype. The built equipment includes the following elements : four modules with eight mirrors each with a total 174 m2 mirror surface and five absorbers. Each set of 4 sequential mirrors turn controlled by a central computer. The absorbers are 6 meters long and vaporize the water running along pipes by solar radiation. They have been installed seven meters above ground floor. A high pressure pump moves the water along the pipes. The produced steam is connected to a steam recirocating engine producing a 12 kW electrical power. A concrete 13 ton storage that can be heated by the steam is also installed to store the heat used at night. Finally a heat exchanger is used to heat a drier or condense the unused steam.The generator has been finished recently and its testing is being performed.
