Larkfleet Group is aiming to help tackle global warming and generate carbon-free electricity with an experimental solar power system being installed alongside its headquarters in Falcon Way, Bourne.

The solar steam system was delivered this week on three huge trucks is currently being installed.

The system consists of panels which focus the sun’s rays onto metal tubes filled with water. This heat can be harnessed to heat water or to produce steam used to drive an electric generator.

The panels are mounted on a rig which will rotate to track the movement of the sun.

The installation will produce only a small amount of steam for experimental purposes.
