Rioglass, the world leader in the production of the highest quality reflectors and receivers for the Concentrated Solar Power and Concentrated Photovoltaic markets is proud to introduce its cutting edge and unrivaled 90mm diameter receiver tube, the UVAC 90. This next generation of receiver provides our clients superior solar heat absorption with reduced heat losses, and sets a new benchmark for thermal heat production using parabolic trough technology. The Xina project being constructed in South Africa, will be the first industrial plant fitted with this product.

The primary focus of project developers has been to improve the efficiency of their CSP installations while continuing to drive cost out of the process. One of the methods used to achieve this objective is through the use of larger aperture troughs which enables more energy to be concentrated onto the receiver, hence increasing the energy output per unit. Once again, Rioglass has responded to the needs of the market by developing this larger UVAC 90 receiver which assures maximum energy absorption from the larger troughs.

<p>September 13th, 2013 – Brussels, Belgium — Rioglass Solar, the leading manufacturer of mirrors used for Concentrating Solar Power, has signed an agreement with Siemens CSP, for the acquisition of the receiver technology and related manufacturing assets.</p>
<p>José M. Villanueva, Chairman and CEO of Rioglass Solar Holding, said “This acquisition provides Rioglass Solar with a unique opportunity to diversify and strengthen its presence in the CSP market with a strong product package. It displays once more our commitment to this industry and our customers to support them in meeting the challenges of a renewable energy future”.</p>
<p>The execution of the transaction is subject to the approval of the Antitrust Authority and other governmental entities. Rioglass Solar reinforces its position as a leader in the CSP market with this transaction, now as a supplier of two of the main components of parabolic trough technology, mirrors and receivers, as well as reflectors for CSP towers, Fresnel and Stirling technologies.</p>
<p>About Rioglass Solar:</p>
<p>Founded in 2007, Rioglass Solar is now the largest CSP mirror supplier in the world with cutting edge production facilities in Spain, the United States and South Africa. Rioglass Solar has supplied worldwide more than seven million mirrors for concentrated solar power (CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technologies.
