Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR)

AREVA Solar’s core technology, the Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR) solar collector and steam generation system, uses modular flat reflectors to focus the sun's heat onto elevated receivers, which consist of a system of tubes through which water flows. The concentrated sunlight boils the water in the tubes, generating high-pressure steam for direct use in power generation and industrial steam applications without the need for costly heat exchangers.

Solar-Hybrid Power Generation

Utility-Scale Solar and Solar-Hybrid Power Generation

AREVA Solar supplies solar steam generators for utility-scale, standalone power plants. The company also offers a low-cost, natural gas back-up boiler (solar-hybrid plant design) that can meet the same dispatchability levels as conventional power plants, but with far lower emissions.

Industrial Steam Processes

Industrial Steam Processes

AREVA Solar offers industrial customers direct solar steam or hot water for diverse process steam applications, ranging from enhanced oil recovery and petrochemical refining, to food processing and desalination.

Solar Steam Augmentation

Steam Augmentation

AREVA Solar’s solar steam generators provide steam augmentation for existing and new build natural gas-fired and coal-fired power plants. Our solar steam generators enable power customers to increase electricity production at peak periods and reduce plant emissions.
