Solimpeks installs England’s largest hybrid collector system


The system, which produces both electricity and hot water simultaneously, consists of 48 Volther hybrid collectors. According to the company, it can produce 8,000 liters of hot water per day.

Solimpeks added that the Volther collector is the one of the world’s first module to straddle both solar thermal and photovoltaics: they recently received certification from the UK’s Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

The company went to on say that two double pumps were installed, alongside two expansion tanks and boilers, where hot water can be stored up to 60 degrees Celsius in the afternoon hours.

It installed the system in conjunction with Newform Energy.
