TiSUN large flat collectors FI perfectly integrated in the roof of the store house

When sailors return from the cold clear waters of the Grimwith Reservoir, especially in spring and autumn, they are in need of a hot shower. The hot water they use will have been generated using solar energy by TiSUN.

As part of the project which has been in planning for 15 years now, the Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club installed 24 m² of TiSUN’s large flat FI collectors on the roof of their store room. The roof faces directly south so will benefit from solar radiation all day.

The solar system consists of only two large 12 m² collectors and is connected to a 4000 litre cylinder that will provide the hot water required for ten showers as well as underfloor heating. During the summer months the solar system is expected to cover 100% of the domestic hot water demand and during spring and autumn when the demand for domestic hot water is lower, the solar system will provide approximately 50% of the DHW demand.

Chairman of the sailing club, Jonathan Lister, stated in his speech at the opening bash that he was delighted with the cost saving and environmentally friendly installation of TiSUN’s Collectors and Cylinder. He also complimented Geoff Miller’s (TiSUN Sales Director) enthusiastic and organized approach to the project.

The TiSUN FI model collector has been designed specifically for in-roof installation, and the frame of the collector is made of timber. This made the installation very easy, once the collectors had been lifted into place, the timber frame of the collector could simply be screwed to the battens and beams of the roof structure. There are only four hydraulic connections on the collectors: One flows from the pump station, one returns to the pump station plus there is a short connector between the collectors.

The installation of the “in-roof” collectors was done by the Halifax-based roofing specialists Ploughcroft Building Services, and the solar installation and integration with the existing installation was done by Solar Utilities of Rotherham.

Proudly situated at the edge of the Grimwith Reservoir, high in the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club is the “best sailing club in the country”. It is a beautiful building that has been designed for the sole purpose of being a sailing club, and has a major renewable energy contribution thanks to solar power.

For more than 20 years TiSUN has manufactured solar collectors and hot water cylinders for the rough reality: TiSUN solar systems offer 100% independent, unlimited and free energy for heating, cooling, hot water production and process heat. All our products are designed and manufactured in Tyrol, Austria, and we export 83 % of our goods. We are solar thermal experts and one of the innovators and market leaders, employing 131 people at our headquarters in Tyrol and 90 sales people in Europe. In 2008 TiSUN opened a branch in New Jersey, USA. Our products are sold in 39 markets across Europe, North and South America, North and Southern Africa and in the Middle East.
