Danish Arcon-Sunmark and Chinese Sunrain established a joint venture which aims to offer large-scale solar heating systems for the Chinese market.

The Chinese market, currently concentrated on smaller solutions, is expected to see significant growth in large-scale solar heating solutions in the coming years, as the interest in solar energy for district heating and industrial purposes is increasing. The newly formed joint venture, Arcon-Sunmark Large-Scale Solar Systems Integration Co., Ltd., will handle sale, installation and operation of Arcon-Sunmark solar heating solutions in China.

Chinese Sunrain, the country’s largest solar water heater exporter and market leader of residential and small solutions in China, has full knowledge about the market but lacks solutions for large-scale installations. Danish Arcon-Sunmark owned by VKR Holding has installed solar heating solutions for district heating plants, breweries, mines and the greenhouse industry and is behind more than 80 % of the largest plants in Europe

“We are very happy to welcome Arcon-Sunmark to China and to become their partner. Together, we can meet the high demand from the Chinese market,” said Xu Xinjian, Chairman of the Board of Jiangsu Sunrain Solar Energy Co., Ltd. “We have thoroughly analyzed the industry worldwide in search for the right partner which shares our high level of dedication, professionalism and ambition, and Arcon-Sunmark indeed has a track record second to none. The joint venture unites two true specialists, and this will benefit our future customers.”

“In our own process to find the best possible partner for the Chinese market, Sunrain was the obvious choice. This is a company with a lot of talents and a strong and visionary leadership. Throughout our long term dialogue we have, time and time again, experienced at first hand why Sunrain has become a market leader in China. We are proud to be collaborating with Sunrain, and will do our utmost to supply state of the art solutions for the Chinese people and industry,” commented Torben Sørensen, Group Executive Officer of VKR Holding, and Chairman of the Board of Arcon-Sunmark.
