Welcome at CSP Services Gmbh
CSP Services GmbH, Concentrating Solar Power Services, is a spin-off company of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Cologne, Germany, with know-how licensed from DLR. CSPS offers engineering and consulting services for developers, operators and owners of solar thermal power plants applying innovative and specific measurement techniques to assure high performance solar fields.
Our range of products and services includes the geometric quality assurance systems QFoto (3D point measurements of large structures in series production) and QDec (high-resolution shape measurements of reflective surfaces in series production) for application in solar power plants. For solar irradiation resource assessment we supply the weather stations MDI (for DNI measurement at remote sites) and MHP (for high-precision DNI measurement and solar power plant monitoring). With our mobile solar field measurement services we assess the quality of all kinds of solar concentrators, and our consulting services cover specific topics such as technical reviews, due diligence and operation monitoring. We also produce and offer robust and economic photogrammetry accessory equipment. Selected standard components are listed in our online catalog.
We are presenting our Rotating Shadowband Irradimeter (RSI) as economic solution for the combined measurement of global, diffuse and solar beam irradiance at the Intersolar Europe fair in Munich. CSPS uses this sensor for solar resource assessments worldwide.
Innovative cloud nowcasting system installed in Spanish parabolic trough plant La Africana within the WOBAS R&D project. In future, WOBAS will be linked with the forecast system CSP-FoSyS, which provides meteorological and production forecasts for up to 14 days.
CSP Services was selected as qualified provider for solar resource measurement services in future World Bank procurements. CSP Services already carried out a solar resource measurement campaign at nine measurement sites in Pakistan. The ground measurement data are available on Energydata website.
NamPower assigns CSP Services to supply automatic weather stations and services for a CSP road map and the establishment of commercial CSP plants in Namibia
CSP Services commissions first QFoto-R Tandem System for assembly quality control of 127 m² large parabolic trough collector structures
CSP Services provides automatic weather stations for a World Bank project to investigate Pakistan’s potential for the exploitation of solar energy
CSP Services’ innovative work on Rotating Shadowband Irradiometers (RSIs) for measurement of direct solar irradiance has been awarded with the SolarPACES Technology Innovation Award 2014 for Norbert Geuder and Stefan Wilbert. The RSI’s outstanding technical features are a success of our collaboration with DLR and include a sophisticated calibration procedure, an innovative twin sensor head and an optional measurement of sunshape patented by DLR
