Company and Business Introduction:
CSP Services GmbH (CSPS) is a German based independent private company. It was established in 2007 as spin-off of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and has work teams in Cologne (Germany) and in Almería (Spain). CSP Services is a recognized engineering and testing company acting as an independent service provider in the field of concentrating solar power to decrease technology risks and improve project performance. It has vast experience and applies specially adapted measurement techniques for solar collector prototype evaluation, quality assurance, inspection and performance improvement of solar fields. The company operates worldwide and covers all CSP technologies such as parabolic troughs, heliostats, dishes and Fresnel systems. Its portfolio includes quality inspection systems for automatic quality control of concentrator structures and mirror panels.
In addition, CSP Services offers solar resource assessment and delivers automatic weather stations. On-site measurement services assess the quality of solar concentrators through geometric, optical and mechanical measurements as well as thermal efficiency analysis. We analyze and optimize operating solar fields, with focus on optical efficiency and thermal gain; provide hydrogen analysis of the HTF and receiver aging checks. Consulting services cover specific topics such as technical reviews, due diligence and operation monitoring and optimization.
CSP Project References:
CSP Services systems are used in Europe, Africa, Asia and North & South America. Our measurement devices, analysis and services have been used during the entire CSP deployment phase from 2007 by over 200 commercial clients worldwide.
QFoto systems already provided quality assurance for concentrator steel structures in over 30 commercial CSP plants worldwide with more than 2.200 MW of total electric power output. As recent highlight, QFoto has been ordered to perform the geometric quality control of the largest CSP project in the world, the 600 MW parabolic trough plants in the Mohamed bin Rashid Solar Park in Dubai, promoted by DEWA.
QDec system measures the shape accuracy of mirror panels in serial production and also for entire trough modules and heliostats. It is used in the German DLR QUARZ laboratory and in all major CSP mirror fabrication lines for more than 20 different mirror panel geometries. In the CPECC Hami 50MW project QDec is used for quality control of complete STELLIO heliostats in the assembly line.
QFly services use the most advanced system in the field of optical characterization of CSP plants. It won the 2018 SolarPACES Technology Award and the 2019 CSPPLAZA Technology Innovation Award. QFly provides shape and tracking results of parabolic troughs and characterizes the thermal properties of aged receiver tubes. QFly has already been utilized in commercial applications around the world. With the data unveiled by QFly, the commissioning time of a CSP plant can be shortened and the yield of the plant can be boosted. The measurement of an entire solar field with several square kilometers size takes only few days.
Expected Business Partners:
CSP Services supports owners, EPC contractors, key component suppliers, technology providers and O&M companies with independent measurements and expert opinions. Further entities like insurances companies or technical advisors can be guided with objective, technology-independent and supplier-neutral advice.
