SAN JOSE BURBANK, Calif. May 23, 2012
eSolar, the leading provider of modular, scalable concentrating solar power (CSP) plant technology, and Sanmina-SCI, a leading integrated manufacturing services company that produces some of the world’s most complex products, will work to optimize eSolar’s solar collector system product offering – a system already deployed in operating CSP facilities.
eSolar’s modular and scalable CSP plant design utilizes sun tracking equipment that is easy to install, plus can be produced in high-quality factories and quickly assembled with simple tools and local customer workforces. These heliostats track the sun with high precision and reflect the sun’s heat to a tower-mounted receiver, which boils water to create steam. This steam powers a traditional turbine and generator to produce clean electricity. Sanmina-SCI will bring their manufacturing and supply chain design input to the table via a joint engineering effort with eSolar designers.
