Protarget on the sunny side in Cyprus

Growing interest in solarthermal technology and increasing collector area offer new opportunities for solar business in Cyprus. The solar thermal power system by Protarget integrates an innovative thermalstorage system and allows steamgeneration up to 425 °C around the clock. Moreover the cypriot customer Kean could reduce the consumption of heavy fuel oil by about 15% annualy and lower its CO2 emissions. And even more is coming! Protarget has designed and commissioned a 220 m2 CPC vacuum tube solar field at Kean in Cyprus earlier this year. More information will be disclosed soon.
