Savo-Solar delivered a solar collector field to Jelling Varmeværk in Denmark in spring 2016. The field was taken into use in mid-June and according to the customer’s measurement and analytics the field shows an excellent, record-breaking performance.

In early June, the first portion of the collector field with 461 collectors (out of a total of 1,031) started its energy production and already during its first weekend produced 34 MWh in one day. The measured efficiency is a record breaking 4.97 kWh/m2, which, according to the information available to the company, is a new Danish record, out-producing the next best field with almost 6%. 

"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," says Bjarne Nielsen, Plant Manager of Jelling Varmeværk. 

"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," Jari Varjotie, Managing Director of Savo-Solar.
