Sophia Project is about a entirely autonomous photovoltaic solar heliostat. It has developed an enterely autonomous heliostat, self-powered and auto-calibrated by means of sensors integrated in the facet.
The heliostat has demonstrated the correct performance of the developed technology, which has been applied to a bigger and more profitable heliostat and the development of a better solar plant (PHOTon Project).
SOPHIA Project benefits include:
- High optical quality heliostat (slope error <1 mrad)
- Foundations are not required
- Calibration process is automated
- Communication and power wiring is not necessary
SOPHIA Project technology has been patented. For more information, please contact us.
This Project has been subsidized by CDTI under the NEOTEC Program, with the support of Ministerio de Economía y Empresa (Formerly, Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Competitividad).
