Published: Monday, November 13, 2023 The “SG4 Big Dish” is the world’s largest and most efficient solar concentrator. It was installed at the Kailash Cancer Hospital and Research Centre at Muni Seva Ashram in Goraj close to Vadodara in Western India.
The Big Dish consists of 380 paraboloidal mirrors that catch the incoming light and reflect it on a solar thermal collector that sits at the focal point of the mirrored bowl. That thermal collector is essentially a pot to boil water or other fluids pumped upwards in a tube. This principle is called Concentrated Solar Power.
The Big Dish generates 400 kilograms of steam per hour. This is enough to cook 2,000 meals a day and also handle laundry and sterilization. Additionally, steam will be used to generate electricity through a turbine.
