Concentrix Solar installs CPV at US Chevron

Concentrix Solar will install a 1 MW solar concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) power plant at a Chevron Mining facility in Questa, New Mexico, USA.

Concentrix Solar of Freiburg, Germany, will use its FLATCON® CPV technology at the Chevron facility.

"This commercial deployment is a key milestone for us and our US strategy," says Concentrix Solar CEO, Hansjörg Lerchenmüller.

"With their high direct normal irradiance and their high energy demand, the South-western states of the USA are perfectly suited for our CPV technology. ... We are excited to prove our technology with Chevron on the Questa site and are planning new investments to further expand our business in the Southwest of the USA in the near future."

A FLATCON solar CPV tracking system has a nominal power output of 6 kW. 1MW consists of approximately 175 systems, which can be placed in an area of 7 acres.
