Leading supplier of utility-scale solar solutions Soitec to exhibit at the world future energy summit in Abu Dhabi

Friday, Jan 11, 2013

BERNIN, France and ABU DHABI, Saudi Arabia, January 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Soitec will exhibit its high-efficiency concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) solutions in the French pavilion (booth #8503) at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) 2013, coming January 15-17 to the National Exhibition Center in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Soitec commits to provide the Middle East with a full range of CPV solutions ranging from systems using the company's Concentrix™ technology for utility-scale solar power plants to its Plug&Sun™  stand-alone unit for smaller scale energy needs in remote locations. The Plug&Sun system will be showcased at WFES 2013 for the first time.

Soitec's CPV technology for large-scale solar power plants

The company's technology, which is designed for use by large-scale solar power plants in sunny, hot and arid regions, provides the highest efficiency of all solar technologies available. While achieving industry-leading energy-generating efficiency of 30 percent, Soitec's systems can withstand high temperatures, and sand storms and do not require any water for cooling, making them well suited to help meet energy needs in sunny, hot and arid locations.  The company's high-concentration, high-efficiency technology, matches day-time peak power load curves, making it an optimal solution for Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries.

Soitec's Plug & Sun portable mini-tracker

At the WFES summit, Soitec will display its Plug&Sun system, the first portable mini-tracker equipped with 4.2 m² of CPV modules and a two-axis tracking system. These features enable the system to generate up to 3.4 kWp of clean, reliable electricity, allowing it to supplement or replace existing electrification solutions such as diesel- and gasoline-driven power generators. It is compatible with international electrical standards and comes with an integrated battery system for powering common electrical devices continuously, 24 hours a day.
