bcb signed a contract for a new project in China, to supply a heliostat calibration system in the LuNeng Haixi 50 MW tower thermosolar plant in Qinghai province. The company SEPCO III, Electric Power Construction Corporation, is the constructor of said plant.
This project is part of the renewable energy program launched by the Chinese government with the aim of reaching an installed solar thermal base of at least 27 GW in 2030.
bcb has contributed to the solar thermal sector for more than 10 years, through the design and development of an application of heliostat calibration systems, based on artificial vision for the capture, analysis and treatment of the projection images of the solar discs (in plants based on tower technology and mirrors).

bcb has realized for the solar thermal plants PS-10 (generates 11 Mw) and PS-20 of Abengoa Solar, and located in Sanlúcar la Mayor, in Seville, the automatic calibration, using artificial vision, of the 624 heliostats in the case of the PS-10, and 1,255 for the PS-20. He has also participated in projects such as Gemasolar in Seville, Tonopah in Nevada (USA) and the Khi Solar One project (50 MW) in South Africa, with external and internal thermography systems.
