TiSUN collectors opposite the castle of Leiria - Adjacent to Leiria’s landmark, the petite family hotel D. Dinis has its location. Fresh aesthetics of 20 m² solar collectors, manufactured by the Tyrolean solar heating specialist TiSUN, deliver a striking contrast to the Portuguese medieval structure.
On the hotel roof, eight TiSUN FM module collectors were installed by TiSUN partner Canalcentro in 2012. 20m² of collector surface delivers hot water supply for 20 bathrooms and sanitary units with an average number of 15 guests.
'To continue providing the best service to our guests, we required a solar thermal installation, which helps us to reduce our increasing gas costs. Since we have TiSUN’s solar system installed, we save 70% of gas each year”, explains Mr. Silva, owner of the hotel. Due to an abundance of sunshine, Leiria with approximately 15,000 inhabitants has a remarkable fraction of TiSUN solar systems.
TiSUN has been developing, producing and selling complete systems for the utilisation of solar heating energy for over two decades. The solar systems provide 100% independent, infinitely available, free solar energy for backup heating, water heating, process heat and cooling.
