Largest solar thermal plant in the world

The largest solar district hot water project in the world is being built in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for the University for Women Project. The collectors built from the Austrian company GreenoneTec, with a gross surface of 10 m² should supply the campus with heat. The company based in St.Veit upgraded the capacity of  production line. Large-surface collectors are only a small share in the production.

The solar plant comprises 36 305 m² of collector surface and produces hot water and supports the heating system for 36 000 residents and will be commissioned by the end of 2010. The installed collector surface is two times bigger than the solar thermal plant in Marstal, Denmark and the total capacity is approximately 17 MW of hot water capacity.
The roof mounted large scale collectors (10 m² units) built from the Austrian company GreenoneTec have been adapted to the specific requirements for the Arabic world. The Austrian company based in St.Veit upgraded the production line for the large order.
The solar district water heating system, which will be designed and installed by Millennium Energy Industries (MEI), will support the district heating network for the entire university campus.
