Largest public solar project in Greece built on Austrian technology
"More than 35,000 liters of water per day are needed in the clinic of the port city of Kalamata. With almost 535 m² collector and seven Pro-Clean stratified tanks with a total storage capacity of 35,000 liters, in the summer months this requirement is almost completely provided by the TiSUN solar system. The annual solar fraction is about 35%", explains the responsible TISUN partner Andrianos Georgios, regarding the efficiency of the solar thermal system. The solar system should be put into operation in just a few weeks.
The hospital of the 70,000-inhabitant city Kalamata is among the most modern hospitals in Greece. The 226 solar panels are mounted on the roofs of eight buildings of the hospital facing a southerly direction and an inclination of 55º. "We estimate that about one third of the energy costs for heating and hot water can be saved through the installation of the TiSUN solar system. The system will generate energy savings of 1.615,000 kWh per year", explains Georgios Andrianos.
Since January 2012, the solar thermal manufacturer TISUN and its partner Andrianos have planned the large-scale solar project. The detailed and specifically tailored planning was crucial for the project approval. Annually, 546 tonns of CO2 will be saved after project completion.
