​Ultra High Concentrated Photovoltaic solar collectors (UHCPV)

The project was founded as a part of the initiative of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for Water Desalination to be powered by a solar energy. The project aims to produce Ultra High Concentrated Photovoltaic solar collectors (UHCPV) with high efficiency by focusing the sunlight 1600 times on high efficiency triple-junction solar cells and installing them on a duel-axis sun tracker system with a capacity of 10 KW. A station with a capacity of 20 KW was installed at Aloyaynah research station and another 10 KW capacity at Alkhafji research station.
