Austrian solar technology is booming on the Arabian market

When it comes expanding the role of solar power in the Arab world, stakeholders have come to recognise the potential of the sun and appreciate the value of expertise and innovative technology. It is therefore of no surprise that more and more major projects are relying on the know-how of the Tyrol-based company TiSUN® GmbH.

Due to the intense solar radiation in the Arabian area, solar thermal systems in this region usually pay for themselves in less than five years and are therefore one of the best sources of renewable energy. TiSUN® GmbH , a manufacturer and exporter with over two decades of experience, has already completed several projects of this nature.

Kuwait City has commissioned one of the world's largest and most modern educational centres, covering a total area of 6 million m2. In 2017, new solar thermal energy systems were installed on both buildings housing the Faculty of Science (one for men and one for women). The total collector area comprises 1,173 m² and is expected to generate an annual yield of 670 MWh, reducing CO2 emissions by an estimated 356 tonnes per year. Not only will this system provide the 7,700 students and academics with 65,000 litres of hot water per day, but it can also be used for research purposes. Plans for the future include the expansion of the system to include a solar cooling function, as well as other projects using TiSUN® technology.

TiSUN® has been developing, manufacturing and distributing complete solar thermal energy systems for more than 25 years. In 2016, exports accounted for 78% of total sales.
