ACME is one of the few companies that offers solar thermal power solutions. With Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants set to become competitive vis-à-vis conventional power plants in the coming future, we foresee a dominant role for CSP technology in solar power.
We develop utility-scale solar thermal projects. This covers pre-feasibility and feasibility studies, engineering design, manufacturing and procurement, fabrication, construction, installation, and commissioning; and operations and maintenance.
We have partnered with eSolar, USA, who have developed state-of-the-art modular tower technology. The technology is scalable and uses tower mounted boilers (known as receivers) and flat mirrors (known as heliostats) for concentrating solar energy and producing steam for generating electricity.
ACME is an equity investor in e-Solar and is the only Indian company that has an exclusive master license for developing utility-scale solar thermal projects in India and neighbouring countries.
ACME's first 2.5 MW solar thermal power plant has been commissioned which will be scaled upto 10MW at Bikaner, Rajasthan.
ACME Solar Thermal Technology
This mainly consists of the solar field of the sun tracking heliostats for reflecting and concentrating the solar rays and a receiver mounted on a thermal tower along with piping for steam generation.
This mainly consists of a steam turbo generator and its auxiliaries, piping and the electrical transmission system.
