Munich and Shanghai – Munich-based Wacker Chemie AG has intensified its cooperation with Royal Tech CSP Limited of China, a specialist for highly efficient solar thermal systems that are based on CSP (concentrated solar power) technologies. The two companies signed an agreement to this effect. Under its terms, WACKER will supply its newly developed HELISOL® silicone fluid to Royal Tech, its exclusive partner in China. Royal Tech uses the silicone fluid as a heat-transfer medium in its solar power plants. HELISOL® can withstand thermal stress of up to 425 °C for a long period of time and its viscosity remains low even at -40 °C. In combination with Royal Tech’s parabolic trough collectors, the fluid enables efficiency levels that are not possible with conventional heat-transfer fluids. At present, Royal Tech is building a 50- megawatt solar power plant in the city of Yumen in western China.
