The framework of this work is a solar concentration power plant using Fresnel mirrors.
The SOLR2 project focuses on the perimeter of the reflector and receiver part of the solar radiation.
The objective of this project is to develop a demonstrator of a mobile solar reflector production unit. It has involved 6 theses. The stakes are to develop a reflector solution adapted to a plant site (1), and a mobile and reconfigurable production environment to go from a plant site to another plant site (2) for an economic return of plant on several sites.
With the reflector comes the question of anchoring the reflector in the ground, and the development of solutions adaptable to different sites (3). It is also necessary to control the durability of the structures built (4) to withstand external aggressions for 20 years. In addition, it is necessary to develop innovative reflective solutions based on glass substrates (5) that maintain reflection performance by minimizing the effects of mineral dirt and scratches due to extreme external conditions.
Finally, work related to risk control in the development of large-scale projects (6) is being carried out. Its aim is to control, depending on the site, the costs and the human and material resources to be mobilized, as well as to create links between the site parameters and the product and production system parameters.
This project led to the realization by the industrial partner of a demonstrator of a mobile plant for the local manufacturing and assembly of reflectors and receivers for a thermodynamic solar power plant, as well as a prototype of a solar power plant under test at the Cadarache center.
