Guardian Industries revealed that it has been contracted to supply its EcoGuard Solar Boost mirrors to solar thermal project Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS), which is being constructed in California’s Mojave Desert. The company advised that it had already the first of 160,000 of its mirrors to ISEGS in November. A timeline for delivery of the remaining EcoGuard mirrors was not provided.
“EcoGuard Solar Boost has been proven to withstand the extreme conditions found in the Mojave Desert,” said Martin Bracamonte, vice president of science and technology for the Guardian Flat Glass Group. “The technology used in manufacturing the glass gives it the extra edge in being a more durable and reliable resource to maximize capturing the sun's energy for large-scale use.”
