July 12 (Renewables Now) - Finland’s Savosolar Oyj has been selected in a tender as the preferred supplier of the solar thermal heating system for the town of Ettenheim, Germany.
The Finnish company is in line to deliver an approximately 1,700-sq-m solar collector field with 200 cu m of heat storage capacity to the city located southwest of Stuttgart. The contract is estimated to be worth over EUR 800,000 (USD 904,000), Savosolar said this week.
The turn-key delivery contract will be closed after the district heating operator, Fernwaerme Ettenheim GmbH, receives final building permit, financing and subsidy approval. Savosolar expects these to be in place in the coming weeks.
The Finnish company plans to make the delivery in 2019, while the final performance test and system hand-over are slated for the first quarter of 2020.
