The world’s largest solar thermal project in Silkeborg went into operation end of December 2016. The project has been designed and installed as a turnkey project by Arcon-Sunmark A/S. The project has a 156.694 m² aperture area and a calculated yield of 110 MWp. The solar heating installation is part of a major conversion of the CHP plant near Silkeborg, and the solar heating production will cover the annual heat consumption of 4,400 households, 20% of the total heat demand in Silkeborg.
The solar heating solution implemented by Silkeborg Forsyning will reduce the CO2 emissions by 15,700 tons/year. The grand opening took place on Friday the 30 June 2017. The turnkey project of Arcon-Sunmark A/S has been supplying more heat than calculated in 2017. In 2017 the last 3 storage tanks have been build Silkeborg Forsyning.
So as of January 2018, the system can be operated as planned. Based on the experiences in 2017, the outlook is bright!
We are really pleased to be able to share such achievements through the Euroheat & Power network!
