Please note that this article was published here by Savosolar.
Savosolar Plc has been selected as a preferred bidder to deliver two solar heating systems to NewHeat SAS in France. Newheat SAS will own the systems and sell the heat to district heating companies of Narbonne and Pons. The delivery contract negotiations are in progress, with both parties aiming to finalize them in a few weeks’ time. After completion of the delivery contracts, the delivery of both systems will start in 2020. These projects will increase the number of Savosolar’s solar heating plants in France to seven.
The size of the solar heating plant in Narbonne is ca. 3,000 m2 and its value is EUR 850 thousand. For Pons, which is very close to Bordeaux, NewHeat’s hometown, Savosolar will deliver the installed solar field including piping. The collectors will be installed on a one-axis tracker system following the sun, allowing for maximum thermal output. The size of this field will be approximately 1,700 m2 and the collector type used will be Savo 15 DG (double glazed), for best performance in higher temperatures. The value of Pons delivery for Savosolar is approximately EUR 700 thousand.
Jari Varjotie, CEO of Savosolar: “We are very pleased, after the delivery of Condat system in 2018, to receive repeat orders from NewHeat, a very active and competent large scale solar thermal project developer in France. Both systems will be connected to district heating, and we believe these will be excellent examples and references for many French towns and municipalities looking for sustainable heating solutions. Especially, we are happy that in Pons we will install our double glazed high performance and quality collectors on the one axis Thermotrack trackers, specially adapted to Savosolar collectors, from the company Arcelor Mittal Projects Exosun, duplicating the solution delivered in Condat – and demonstrating the potential of this solution to produce clearly more energy from a limited land area.”
