Al Raha Gardens project in Abu Dhabi

Al Raha Gardens project in Abu Dhabi

In order to serve the markets in the Middle East, the Austrian solar thermal manufacturer TiSUN founded the subsidiary TiSUN GCC FZC in Dubai at the beginning of December 2011. The first projects in the MENA-region have been successfully implemented. A major project in Abu Dhabi is equipped with solar systems “made in Austria”.

"The countries on the Arabian Gulf are among the sunniest regions in the world. With nine hours per day, the amount of sunshine is much higher than in any European country. This is one reason why the Middle Eastern countries provide the ideal conditions for the installation of solar thermal systems," explains TiSUN CEO Robin M. Welling of the economics of renewable energies in the Arabian markets.

Since December 2011, TiSUN G.C.C. FZC distributes (plans, installs, designs and services) its solar thermal systems in the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. A major project in Abu Dhabi is currently being implemented with the Al Raha Gardens project, an oasis of calm in the 600,000 inhabitant city of Abu Dhabi. On a total area of six km², 750 houses, gardens with several pools, two private schools, kindergardens and commercial buildings have been built. 28 luxury single-family houses in this area will be supplied with environmentally friendly hot water provided by a TiSUN solar thermal system. With a total collector surface area of 8 m² (four module collectors per house) and a 500 liter fresh water tank each house generates energy for the minimum of 4 persons. The solar fraction of the TiSUN system is 70 percent.

Bashar Muhtadi, Managing Director of TiSUN G.C.C. FZC, is pleased with the positive development of the Middle Eastern markets: “The integration of solar heating systems in the modern building environment has become a standard in the MENA (Middle East + North Africa) region in the last three years - especially when public institutions, such as schools, hospitals and government buildings are constructed. Thanks to the many hours of sunshine in the Gulf region, solar thermal systems amortize within less than five years and therefore build the ideal solution for energy recovery. Our experience has shown that the quality of European products is appreciated in the Middle Eastern countries, while inferior low-price products are hardly successful. The United Arab Emirates have been our strongest markets in 2012 so far. For 2013 we see great potential in Qatar, where we are already planning some major projects for the application of Qatar as the host of the FIFA World Cup in 2022.”

"The Gulf regions are among the largest exporters of fossil fuels. A change in mind-set from fossil to renewable energy is already in evidence. The demand for solar installations in the Middle East is rising and many construction projects in Dubai and Abu Dhabi will be built sustainably. In a few decades a large extent of the energy needed in the Arab countries could be covered by solar energy," comments Robin M. Welling. "We want to become one of the market leaders in Middle East – particularly in the field of large-scale solar plants."

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. Known as Europe's solar heating specialist, TiSUN has an export quota of 83%. The company employs a workforce of 120 at the main location in Tyrol/Austria and 90 sales personnel in Europe. TiSUN products are available in 44 markets in the EU27 and candidate countries, Switzerland, the former CIS states, the USA, MENA and India. All serially produced solar collectors feature multiple certifications. In addition to the Solar Keymark, which is valid across Europe, and the Austria Solar Seal of Quality, quality certifications from five other countries confirm the high standard of the products. The ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management Test Certificate verifies that both product and service quality levels are especially high. Since 2010, the company has also been certified under the international environmental management standard ISO 14001.
