It comprises two of Microsolar's high-efficiency thermosiphonic solar heater units, which deliver 70 °C hot water for cleaning and sterilizing the milking machines. Microsolar's water heaters are designed and assembled in Malaysia for the international market. They are of a patented coaxial multivalve design: 30 large vertical heating pipes lead from the collector panel directly into the tank. With no bottlenecks, the water heater can reach a very high level of efficiency, the manufacturer explains.

The experience of the TÜV SÜD experts has shown that even in the case of different WEC types, wind farms can often be assessed as a total complex (pict. TÜV SÜD)

Twenty years does not have to mean the end. Many wind-energy converters (WECs) can continue to feed power into the grid far beyond their original service life. TÜV SÜD experts know what is important in the Assessment and Verification of the Lifetime Extension of Onshore Wind Energy Converters (LTE) and how to leverage opportunities.
