SunOyster 16

The SunOyster combines the best of existing solar systems: Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), Concentrated Photovoltaics (CPV) and the low-cost CSP mirrors that track the sun biaxially.
In case of strong wind, the SunOyster automatically closes its mirrors into a secure flat position – just as an oyster closes its shell. Therefore, it can also be installed in the best place for solar energy: On the roofs. When installed on the ground in an unshaded environment, it can be easily mounted on steel anchors or concrete steps.


The heart of the SunOyster is a hybrid receiver which is protected by a borosilicate glass tube. Inside the tube, special glass lenses concentrate the light a second time to reach 500 times the power of the sun. Highly efficient (44%) solar cells developed for spacecraft convert this directly into electricity. The liquid can reach temperatures of up to 110°C. In the version of the purely thermal receiver, higher temperatures of up to 170°C can be reached, e.g. for process heat.


In sunny regions the SunOyster shall produce the cheapest solar energy wherever heat or cold are needed.

Additional Measurement Devices and Control Systems


SunOyster Systems can supply different measurement devices e.g. for the measurement of the direct normal irradiation (DNI) – e.g. from Delta T (picture) – including data loggers and system integration.


Moreover, we can supply control systems to operate your solar cycle with storages, pumps and auxiliary equipment.

Heat Applications


With cost-efficient thermal energy of up to 170°C, the SunOyster opens the door to large range of heat applications.

Manifold heat applications
The SunOyster can reach higher temperatures than conventional solar collectors

Worldwide Transportation, Installation and Monitoring Services


The SunOyster started in February 2018 the installation all around the world, from Chile to China, in order to collect a rich operational experience. Within the remote monitoring of these SunOysters, the sun will never set.

SunOyster Systems is transporting and installing the pre-series machines worldwide.

However, we reserve the right to focus on the most attractive markets at any time.


Projects of the pre-series SunOysters Buyers e.g. Engie, N-ERGIE, Thermax
