Strong in the excellent performance obtained with the range of vega energy surfaces, the Almeco Group has developed vegaprime, a panel composed of aluminium designed for the construction of parabolic solar concentrating systems. vegaprime is constructed by combining the highly reflective surface and corrosion resistant vega WR to a support structure consisting of a plastic and aluminium foil core.
The characteristics of the vegaprime mirror - such as shape, size, and any curvature - can be adapted to each particular application. Its light weight and high bending flexibility (over 10 times compared to conventional systems) greatly simplifies the process of on-site assembly, optimising the cost of installation and transportation. These advantages are combined with the excellent workability and the absence of rupture phenomena, typical of glass mirrors.
