British High Commission Abuja, Nigeria Solar Water Heating
The French construction group Bouygues Construction – Nigeria were awarded the high profile contract to construct the New British High Commission in Abuja, Nigeria. The building specification required a high quality solar water heating system to produce the hot water needs of the various buildings, together with engineering training support on the install of the systems for hot water generation. We were very pleased to be awarded both the supply and install training support on this prestigious contract.
We are able to generate very high levels of heat energy which can then be used to store hot water in the 3000 L tanks. The high concentration of solar radiation in Nigeria allows the generation of up to 100% of the hot water requirements across the whole site with ease.
Working alongside Bouygues Construction & our engineers supervised the installation of x30 Award Winning TS300 panels onto the roof structure of the two buildings using our light weight frame & panel fixing systems.
At the heart of the system is our solar controller and high efficiency pump station that automatically circulates the generated heat from the solar panels into the hot water storage tanks that are used for the hot water consumption of the building. The solar panels will not overheat as the they have been designed to stagnate at 190 °C Download Why No Heat Dump ? providing FREE energy for the hot water needs of the building.
