German solar company Solarlite has completed installation of a solar thermal and biomass demonstration plant at the University of Phitsanulok’s School of Renewable Energy Technology (SERT) in Thailand.
The TRESERT project is designed to show how a parabolic trough and biomass plant can produce electricity, heat and refrigeration. It consists of trough collectors for steam generation, turbines for energy production and an absorption cooling machine for air conditioning.
In addition, a back-up biomass boiler was integrated into the system to keep the operating temperature stable.
It was developed with funding from the Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
Joachim Krüger, CEO and founder of Solarlite, said, ‘Projects like TRESERT are the right approach to finding a long-term solution to energy problems in the rural areas of Thailand. Working with the SERT was absolutely terrific and provided the infrastructure and contacts we needed to successfully market the TRESERT project.’
