F.D.E. Solar Srl
FDE SOLAR was established in 2010 as a direct emanation of the FDE SPA parent group which since 1995 has been European leader in the production of copper, iron and stainless steel heat exchangers. FDE SOLAR was established with the contribution of our collaborators and as a result of research and analysis of markets in the Americas to create a new manufacturer in the field of solar thermal panel production and their construction parts for the market in Europe and outside Europe. The aim is to become a third party producer for the market of absorbers and solar thermal panels, 100% derived from OEMs, that is with exclusive industrial and production experience, positioning itself in a market which various world level projections see as a strong growth market since it is a simple and direct alternative technology that can be used both civilly and industrially.
The basic idea is to bring to fulfillment and exploitation all the knowledge accumulated by the companies of the FDE group over the last 15 years of industrial production (copper, iron and stainless steel working) which made it one of the indisputable leaders in the heat exchanger and boiler parts sector.
The project also arose in response to the requests of our traditional clients in the heating sector who for some time had wanted to purchase heat absorbers from our companies (the heart of the solar thermal panel) or the complete solar panel.
The FDE SOLAR production unit currently covers an area of 5000 square meters.
FDE SOLAR decided right from the start to continue the research it has pursued for more than ten years in terms of quality and excellence and choose to use only the laser welding technique for its absorbers and panels, rejecting ultrasound welding because it does not achieve the quality levels which it wants for its products.
We wish with FDE SOLAR to follow in the footsteps of FDE's success achieved through continuous research and development, with the constant collaboration of our clients, suppliers and the training of our own staff, aspects which make it possible for us to manufacture products of higher quality while seeking to reduce and optimize production costs even before our clients ask for it.
Product optimization is the main added value which, as FDE, we have always given our clients, and with FDE SOLAR we intend to pursue the same course.
FDE SOLAR offers a product range to meet current market needs and it can produce absorbers up to 9 square meters in size and is thus able to satisfy special requests from its clients.
Our research over the last three years to find the best solutions for the construction of solar panels has enabled us to achieve a good level of quality and knowledge of the coupling systems between panels and connection pipes which means that working conditions are simpler and safer for hydraulic installers. In addition, our couplings also act as dilator couplings, an extremely important function in this heating equipment.
Our mission shall be, however, to continue our research and to give our clients even greater satisfaction.
