Construction started for a new 35 000 m² solar district heating plant in Denmark

What will (at least for a short period) be the world’s largest solar thermal plant for district heating is now being constructed in Dronninglund in Denmark.

With 35 000 m2 of solar collectors, a 60 000 m3 pit heat storage and a 2 MW (cooling) absorption heat pump, the plant will provide Dronninglund district heating net with more than 50% of the yearly heat demand from 40 GWh. ARCON Solar will supply the solar collectors and the storage will be implemented in an old gravel pit.

The concept of the plant was developed within the SUNSTORE 3 project and the construction of the plant is now supported by Danish EUDP (Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme) with 2.5 million € out of  the 14 million € total cost.

 

The plant is expected to be in operation February 2014. Three similar – but larger – plants are already planned in Southern Denmark and expected to be realized without support.
