Rioglass is an international company offering high quality HCE receivers and concentrating mirrors. It now is the largest supplier of CSP HCE receivers and concentrating mirrors in the world with modern production facilities, and with worldwide presence in the CSP market. Rioglass offers the best economic solutions based on innovative designs and concepts combined with highly automated production capacity to produce high quality products and uniform quality worldwide.
Innovation is embedded in the company´s culture. Rioglass was the first company to introduce the tempered mirrors and heliostat mirror facets. Rioglass´ HCE receivers are the state-of-the-art solution.
Capitalizing on 200 years of experience in steam generation and boiler manufacturing, CMI now also offers equipment for high power CSP plants.
CMI are working mainly on the central tower technology, in which a receiver located at the top of a tower absorbs the solar energy concentrated by thousands of mirrors on the ground. Efficient for direct steam generation as well as for the heating molten salts or other heat transfer fluids, it is the most promising technology to compete with low cost PV, thanks to its ability to economically store high quantities of energy and so allow dispatchability and overnight electricity production.
CMI already supplied the receiver for the 50 MWe Khi Solar One plant, now in commercial operation in South Africa. We also delivered the molten salts receiver for the 110 MWe Atacama 1, under site erection in Chile (760 MWth absorbed power, 17.5 hours storage).
