Project Description:
The 630 m² concentrating collector field with NEP Solar’s new PolyThrough 1800 is mounted on the flat roof of the “Tête de Moine” cheese curing and ripening plant in Saignelégier in the Swiss Jura. The solar process heat is integrated into existing heat storage as long as the storage remains above 25% charged. If, however, the storage goes below 25 %, the boiler is switched on and the solar process heat preheats the return line of the boiler.
