This thesis details the design and real implementation of a solar concentrating collector, capable of being disassembled and transported at the end of the steam injection phase in EOR fields. Allowing the solar generation to follow the development of the different injection areas within the oil field.

The theoretical design of the collector comprises a detailed comparison between different constructive alternatives for each of its main components. The design principles assumed during the development are verified and validated during the actual implementation of the collector (through two functional prototypes), and the test campaign carried out at Plataforma Solar de Almería.
