Savo-Solar thermal collectors at Jelling Varmevaerk show a record breaking performance of 5kWh/m2
Savo-Solar has delivered a solar collector field to Jelling Varmeværk in Denmark in spring 2016. The field has been taken into use mid-June and shows, according to the customer’s measurement and analytics, an excellent performance. In early June, a first portion of the collector field started its energy production and already during its first weekend of production produced 34 MWh in one day. This initially started portion of the field contains 461 of the total of 1,031 collectors and offers a total area of 6,836.63m2. Accordingly, the measured efficiency is a record breaking 4.97 kWh/m2, which is, according to the information available to the company a new Danish record, passing the next best field with almost 6%.
Bjarne Nielsen, Plant Manager of Jelling Varmeværk: “We are very pleased to have received a collector field which has become record breaking already in its first weeks of operation. It will be exciting to follow the collectors’ performance during the summer and the rest of the year.”
Jari Varjotie, Managing Director of Savo-Solar: “We are happy to see that our collectors are delivering according to promise, to the full satisfaction of our customers. Our unique technology means minimized heat loss and maximized energy yield, and the results are best seen in practice. The more data we receive from actual use of our collectors, the better we can encourage our potential new customers to rely on our thermal systems.”
