PARABOLIC TROUGH SOLAR COLLECTOR PLANT ON POLAR MOUNTING FOR INDUSTRIAL THERMAL ENERGY PRODUCTION (MODENA - ITALY) - DEMONSTRATION PROJECT.
This final Report covering the description of the installation and experience gained during experimental operation has been drawn up based upon the work program agreed upon between the EEC and Ansaldo Impianti S.p.A. within the scope of Contract SE-222-81. In addition to the technical description of the project, this report also includes an aggregate evaluation of the costs incurred for this Project and the cost of the produced thermal energy. An analysis of the technical problems encountered during the execution of this first plant and the economic evaluations reported in this Paper will provide sufficient indications regarding the prospects for large-scale installation of similar plants and the difficulties with which the users, manufacturers of components and installers will have to cope. Some variations on the original project have been introduced: additional equipment was installed to gain experience with solar collectors and systems utilizing the thermal energy thus produced. In principle, the Plant had to be fitted within an industrial context and fully equippped with automation systems for easy management.
