turnkey Renewable energy solution (under construction)Dutch agricultural customer
This agricultural customer is situated in the Netherlands. Currently, their operations rely on a pellet boiler to heat water up to 80 °C. This project will support the customer’s objective towards a more sustainable operation while reducing energy costs.
Suncom provides a comprehensive turnkey solution tailored for the Dutch farmer. This solution has the capability to completely replace the customer’s current heating method (a pellet boiler) with our advanced solution. The integrated system comprises 50 SunArcs, a SunTES 100 (our Thermal Energy Storage), a heat pump, and an advanced sun-tracking system. The overall system is projected to generate approximately 460,000 kWh thermal annually.
- 50 SunArcs
- Insulated buffer tank
- Heat pump
- Advanced sun-tracking system
The project is structured into three distinct phases: engineering, supply and installation, and commissioning. Our target is to achieve full operational status by the conclusion of 2023, thereby facilitating the customers transition towards complete sustainability.
This project has also been granted the Hernieuwbare Energie Subsidie (HER+), a subsidy program specific to the Netherlands, further underscoring our commitment to sustainable solutions.
In early 2023, we successfully engineered, constructed, and tested a pre-production setup at our Houten facility.
This system comprises:
- 2 SunArcs
- A SunTES 100 Thermal Energy Storage
- Our advanced sun-tracking system
It efficiently heats water to temperatures of up to 100 °C, storing the heat for multiple days.
The pre-production setup demonstrates an impressive output, reaching up to 17 kW peak power with 24 m2 of mirror surface and converting an impressive 71% of sunlight into heat.
Most importantly, this successful pre-production setup signals our readiness for mass production.
