DAHCE: New design of the HCE supports in parabolic trough solar thermal plants


Projects co-financed by the CDTI and the European Union through the ERDF

Renewable Power


In the DAHCE project, a new model of HCEs (Heat Collector Element) support is being developed for the parabolic trough collectors of solar thermal plants, which will include a new concept of the pipe support clamp that prevents the metal pipe from breaking both during installation and throughout its useful life. This new support will allow the use of thinner HCEs tubes with the consequent increase in heat transmission.
