Car washing with the power of the sun

At a petrol station in Belgrade 150 customers a day wash their car with environmentally friendly hot water generated by a TiSUN solar system.

The OMV petrol station in Belgrade, Serbia is considered a pioneer in the field for the production of hot water for their car wash system. Eight TiSUN module collectors with a total collector surface area of 20 m² were installed on the roof of the building in 2010. The solar system provides regenerative hot water for the jetwash system and covers the entire hot water demand for sanitary facilities, showers and the filling station shop. A 1,000 litre hot water tank is the energy centre of the gas station. The project was implemented by the Serbian installation company Master Solar.
