TIGI’s solar system is fully operational in one of Israel’s largest wineries

Petach Tikva, 30 Nov. 2015

TIGI, the Honeycomb Collector company, has completed another installation for provision of water for an industrial system in Israel.

The system – a 240 m² collector array – is installed in Golan Wineries in Katzrin, and provides ~70% of the annual heat energy required for the winery’s barrel and tank washing process.

Each day the winery uses 12 m³ of water at 85 °C for the process.

In sunny summer days the system is designed to supply up to 100% of the energy needs of the winery. When needed, additional energy is provided by a fossil fuel boiler.

The first few months of operation meets expectations and simulation predictions.
