POLYPHEM 3rd Project Meeting

temperature solar receiver mock-up

The POLYPHEM 3rd project meeting took place in CEA premises in Grenoble beginning of April 2019. This project aims at developing a solar tower technology at small scale for decentralized power generation in remote areas and mini-grids.

This was the opportunity to visit the CEA laboratories and get a visual update of the construction of the POLYPHEM high temperature solar receiver mock-up using manifolds on its backside and air as coolant – Hot Isostatic Pressing manufacturing with copper and Nickel base alloys.

The next project meeting will take place in Bremen, Germany in September 2019. As part of the dissemination activities, we will organise a one day conference open to the public in general and related to the project and the importance of small-scall CSP plants.
