District heating


With this new solar thermal plant for newHeat, Savosolar add a new leading reference in the French market of solar district heating. This approximately 3,000 m2 solar thermal field (aperture), will allow to replace 2,410 MWh of former gas heated heat by renewable heat on Narbonne’s city network, manage by a subsidary of Dalkia.

Savosolar, on the behalf of newHeat, built mainly the whole solar plant, from the solar collector’s field until the outlet of the heat exchanger to the storage thermal tank, ie: solar field, piping and solar station. More then 200 of our Savo 15 SG-M collectors, ensuring a high energy yield while reducing 510 tons of CO2 emissions per year from the district heating system of the city. The production of solar field during winter will even allow an increasing of the yield of the existing biomass boiler.
