About Us

SolarTron Energy Systems Inc. is a clean-tech company with headquarters in Nova Scotia, Canada. We specialize in mechanical, optical, and electronic engineering. With our expertise, we have designed the most efficient and economical solar parabolic dish concentrator for use in utility and industrial CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) applications.

From the optical to mechanical design, Solartron’s engineers, by the direction of CEO and founder, Edward Herniak, have designed a complete system that can be manufactured in high volume and low cost.

When designing the SolarBeam, our engineers ensured that the mechanical assembly was designed for fast deployment to ensure low cost installation. The SolarBeam was also engineered with zero optical alignment which eliminates the need for alignment of the mirrors during the commissioning process. 

Solartron was founded in 2009 and is a privately funded company. The initial design of parabolic concentrator was a 4.5 meter system designed for low temperature applications below 94 Celsius.

The SolarBeam 4.5M has been used in 48 locations around the world including:

  • USA
  • Canada
  • Australia
  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Germany

With various climatic environments, the SolarBeam 4.5M was continuously refined to ensure performance and reliability in all geographic and climatic conditions.

The SolarBeam 4.5M outperforms any conventional flat panel, evacuated tube or trough for lower temperature applications.

The SolarBeam 4.5M has been certified by the following certification organizations:

  • SRCC (USA)
  • KeyMark (Europe)
  • CSA (Canada)
  • GlobalMark (Australia / New Zealand)

The SolarBeam 7M is the latest model built for utility and industrial solar thermal applications such as:

  • Sterling Engine Electricity Production
  • Steam & ORC Electricity Production
  • Solar Water Desalination
  • Solar Enhanced Oil Recovery
  • Industrial Process Heating

The new SolarBeam 7M features:

  • Diameter: 7 meters (23 feet)
  • Collecting Area: 38.5 m2 (414 sq.ft)
  • Weight: 1,100 kg (2,425 lbs)
  • Thermal Production:  31.5 kW (107,480 BTU) 
  • Concentration Ratio: 1000 X
  • Focal Point Temp: up to 800 Celsius (1472 Fahrenheit)

Solartron Energy Systems can provide the world’s most advanced solar concentrator solution for your next CSP project at the lowest LCoE.
