Design project of a solar thermal system for a residential building located in Barcelona

CLIENT: OIKOSVIA SCCL
PROPERTY DEVELOPER: Patronat Municipal de l’Habitatge de Barcelona
LOCATION: BARCELONA
DATE: 2018

Arkenova designed a solar thermal system for a residential building located in Maresme Street (Barcelona). This solar thermal plant will provide domestic hot water (DHW) to the users of the newly constructed building.

The minimum DHW consumption that must be covered with solar thermal energy is established: 50% of the annual demand. Accordingly, this solar thermal plant has been designed to cover 55% of demand.

Eighteen solar collectors will be used in conjunction with gas-fuelled boilers. The heat exchanger will be a plate heat exchanger and the storage system will be distributed.
