TiSUN gives help for Christmas

Tyrolean Solar Expert gives a South African orphanage a water-purifying solar installation

The phrase ‘Merry Christmas’ is all around us – we hear it, think it or say it almost every day of December. Yet saying it does not make it happen. For many, Christmas is far from merry, and the season of Peace and Goodwill is in fact the most hectic time of the year. Presents, hot drinks and cookies take centre stage, while the true values of Christmas—joy, giving, and thanks—take a back seat.

So TiSUN has decided to donate gifts to those who really need them, rather than to our clients, who no doubt approve. With your help we will build a solar thermal installation to turn salt water into purified, clean drinking water for orphans in South Africa.

TiSUN will put all of its expertise and 25,000 Euros towards developing, producing and installing the product. It will go to the Mordecai orphanage in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, which is run by Pastor Geert Jansingh and financed by donations alone. The daily purification of 250 litres of salt water into clean drinking water will help 24 children orphaned by the AIDS virus to improve their living and health standards.

A 3-year old wishing for a Merry Christmas sounds naive at best. An adult sounds almost laughable. Which is why we are trying to live up to our simplest Christmas wishes—bringing good cheer to those who need it—by doing what we do best.

You can learn more about the progress of these 24 children on www.tisun.com, where we will document every step of the project.

Market leader TiSUN shows the way in innovation

TiSUN produces high-quality solar collectors and storage systems for heat recovery from solar energy, built to withstand the harsh conditions of an alpine climate. The company has now been researching and developing its own technology for several decades, with the last ten years seeing it establish a position as one of Europe's top solar thermal manufacturers.
Around 75 per cent of production output from TiSUN is shipped outside Austria.
In 2007, the company, which employs 120 people at its site in Söll, Austria, was once again awarded the Austria Solar Seal of Quality. All standard-series TiSUN solar collectors are manufactured according to the standards of the Europe-wide SOLAR KEYMARK certification programme. The commercial success of the company has also received outside recognition, with the Wirtschaftsblatt economic journal, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and KSV1870 (Austria’s largest association for the protection of creditors) all ranking TiSUN among the top three Tyrolean medium-sized enterprises in the “Austria’s Leading Companies” awards.
TiSUN achieved a further milestone in the second quarter of 2008 with the establishment of TiSUN LLC in New Jersey, USA.
