British High Commission Abuja, Nigeria Solar Water HeatingHarry
The French construction group Bouygues Construction – A leader in sustainable construction, the Group sees shared innovation as its primary added value and ensures that health and safety are its top priorities. It has pledged to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 and offers its customers a wide range of low-carbon solutions. They 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 commercial, industrial 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. Thermosolar UK 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.
