30 September 2022 - 11:00

As part of the framework agreement for the acquisition of a robotized production line for concentrating solar collectors, Planet Soar has paid SEK 1 million. This means that Absolicon is now ordering equipment and electronic components to deliver a production line to France.

Absolicon has 2022-09-30 published a press release on the payment from Planet Soar. The following is an English translation of that press release

Absolicon and Planet Soar have on 11nd of January 2021 signed a framework agreement on the acquisition of a robotic production line for concentrating solar collectors in France. The robotic production line has the capacity to produce one solar collector every six minutes, equal to 100,000 square meters of solar collector per year.

Since the agreement was signed, the companies have been working together to develop the French solar heat market with a focus on heat for industries.

France has a wide industrial sector which consumes around 60 % of total energy as heat, emitting 40 Mtons of CO2 every year*. By replacing only 10 % of fossil fuels used in the industries with Absolicon solar collectors to supply industrial heat demand, the estimate market potential for the T160 solar collector can be up to 8 million sqm (4GW).

As part of the framework agreement with Absolicon, Planet Soar has paid SEK 1 million towards a bank guarantee. The payment means that Absolicon is now ordering critical equipment and electronic components with long delivery time to supply a production line to France.

Absolicon är ett börsnoterat svenskt solenergiföretag, specialiserat på koncentrerad solvärme. Solfångaren T160 arbetar upp till 160°C och har den högsta optiska verkningsgraden som någonsin uppmätts för ett kommersiellt tillgängligt litet paraboliskt tråg. Efter att ha uppnått banbrytande prestanda har Absolicon byggt två robotiserade produktionslinor, en i Sverige och en i Kina som kan producera en 5,5 m2 solfångare var sjätte minut. Företaget kombinerar solenergiforskning med försäljning av solfångarfält till industrier som behöver hetta och ånga samt kompletta robotiserade produktionslinor för T160.
