NEP Solar have installed and commissioned in the first quarter of 2010 a 230m2 (120kW) PolyTrough1200 solar field at the world leading solar test facility PSA. The heat from the solar field is delivered to a sea water desalination unit. The client has purchased the NEP Solar collectors to demonstrate the coupling of medium temperature solar heat with a number of innovative technologies, like high efficiency desalination and tri-generation (electricity, heat and cooling).
