ARUN - Model 160 - Solar Concentrator Dish
Clique Solar launches the ARUN 160 solar concentrator dish. ARUN100 will retain the innovative dish design and the automatic two axis tracking system, while improving the economics. Clique Solar, India’s first solar boiler company, is a pioneer in developing solar thermal technology for industrial process heating and comfort cooling applications. Its patented ARUN solar boiler and solar thermal concentrator (CST) dish is a result of ground-breaking research and thorough testing. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and I.I.T. Bombay have supported this development effort.
The ARUN solar thermal concentrator is a Fresnel Paraboloid Solar Concentrator System with a Point Focus based on assembly of reflectors. ARUN uses solar grade mirrors as reflectors. The system automatically tracks the sun from morning to evening using a proprietary electronic tracking system. The receiver is placed at the focus of the paraboloid concentrator. It is an inverted cavity type receiver with MS tubing as per the required pressure. ARUN design integrates the latest technologies for complete automated operations with minimum maintenance with all built in safety provisions as well as two axes tracking of the Sun.
