A solar collector system must last for 25 years whether it is in desert areas or polar regions, needing to withstand hail storms, hurricanes, and extreme temperatures. Absolicon’s T160 is today the only concentrating solar collector in the world to meet these requirements.
Absolicon has a unique technology, based on 20 years of research, for extracting energy in different forms using concentrated solar collectors. Our solar collector T160 has the highest optical efficiency ever, was the first of its kind to be certified with Solar Keymark, and contains world-class components.
Record high performance.
Absolicon has, through its own research and various collaborations, found methods that reduce cost and raise performance levels of our products. Each component of the T160 collector contributes to the total, record high, performance.
In tests at The Swiss Institut für Solartechnik (SPF) in Rapperswil Absolicon solar collector T160 has shown to have an optical efficiency of 76.4 %. The highest number ever achieved for a small parabolic trough.
The German certification body DIN CERTCO has granted Absolicon’s T160 solar collector the only quality certification – Solar Keymark – for a concentrating solar collector. The Absolicon T160 is the first solar concentrator in the world to be certified with the Solar Keymark certification.
