Award for SHC plant from S.O.L.I.D.

This was announced by the Austrian company S.O.L.I.D. GmbH in a press release. The plant, which is being built on the campus of the United World College of South East Asia, is the only solar thermal project to have received the award.

The projects are selected for the award depending on their innovative character, economic efficiency and use of know-how. When it is finished, the solar cooling plant being built by S.O.L.I.D. at the United World College will be the world's largest solar cooling installation (see S&WE 10/2010, p. 84). The plant is being built by S.O.L.I.D. in cooperation with other Austrian companies such as ÖkoTech and Schneid. According to S.O.L.I.D, the project is especially innovative due to its business model. It is being realized via a contracting system. The main components of the plant have now been assembled on the building and it will go into operation according to plan in spring 2011.
