Savosolar has entered into final agreement with Fernwärme Ettenheim GmbH on delivery of approximately 1,700 m² solar collector field and 200 m³ heat storage. Fernwärme Ettenheim operates a district heating network to supply the German city of Ettenheim, Southwest of Stuttgart, with heat. The new Savosolar plant will save cost and emissions since the solar heat is to replace woodchips and oil. The 1.2 MW Savosolar solar thermal system is expected to be operational already in Q4 2019, with final performance test and hand-over planned for early 2020. The value of the delivery to Savosolar is over 800 k€.

 

The ground-mounted solar thermal system with Savosolar’s premium flat-plate collectors will be a turn-key delivery. As a manufacturer of solar collectors, that business model had been used by Savosolar successfully before e.g. in Finland and France.

 

Jari Varjotie, CEO of Savosolar: “The Ettenheim project marks another milestone of our internationalization strategy. We invested in Germany, we came to stay, and customers obviously appreciate our experience and competitive offer. The famous German “Energiewende” is going to get completed with the “Wärmewende”, i.e. the transition towards 100% healthy heat supply. Large-scale solar thermal with flat-plate collectors will be a substantial and highly competitive part of the solution! As people we are grateful and as a company we are proud to see Fernwärme Ettenheim GmbH go towards 100% renewable heat production. Savosolar will make this solar thermal plant a blue print for many other district heating network operators in Germany to solarize their energy business too.”
