Solar Thermal Systems at the new Dubai sports complex

Following the successful installation of the solar thermal system supplied by SOLE S.A. (Athens-Greece) at the tallest building in the world (BURJ KHALIFA) in Dubai; one more impressive construction in Dubai is going Green with SOLE's solar system. At the new Dubai Sports Complex, SOLE S.A. has installed a solar thermal system consisting of 1026m² of blue selective solar collectors for sanitary hot water and swimming pool heating. Mounted on the side of the building, the collectors, manufactured at SOLE's most advanced-highly automated production plant in Athens, are heating 8.000 litres of water daily, which is used for the needs of the whole sports complex.


The solar system produces about 3.200kWh daily and saves more than 950MWh per annum. The Dubai Sports Complex sets another example in the area and demonstrates how all kinds of buildings can go "green". Thus saving energy for themselves, for their country, contributing to the reduction of pollution and to a healthier future of our children.


The solar heating system is installed by SOLE S.A., the oldest solar thermal manufacturer in Europe.


SOLE S.A. founded in 1974 holds a leading position in the solar thermal market, exporting 70% of its products worldwide. SOLE SA has a sophisticated automated production plant of solar collector systems and water heaters for central heating, pool heating and solar air conditioning.
