Iran Solar Hot Water Program
Iran Solar Hot Water Program, 2004 – 2008
In the course of a public tender, IFCO, a subsidiary of the National Iranian Oil Company, had officially invited the ACE Group to set up a test station of water heating collectors to ensure energy supply for a public bath. The overall scope of the tender, for which the ACE Group has submitted a bid together with GREENoneTEC, a leading Austrian producer of solar technology, comprises 1000 public baths in cities and towns across Iran, and some 200,000 private facilities.
The Ace Group was responsible for the whole Project Management, the development and installation of the solar hot water heating systems. The innovative system utilized European RE technologies and components and replaced the inefficient boilers burning low-quality fuel oil. The project qualified for the CDM carbon credit mechanism and was awarded the Austrian Consulting Award for Export-Oriented Engineering in 2007.
