Title: Supply and installation of a central solar water heating system in Sri Lanka
As a tropical country, Sri Lanka receives abundant sunlight throughout the year. This sunlight can be efficiently used for solar thermal applications. Alpha Solar Systems designed, manufactured and installed the largest central solar water heating system in Sri Lanka for the Galle Face Hotel in Columbo. The 11,000 liter forced circulation system supplies 82 rooms, the spa, the kitchen and the laundry, saving approximately 2000 liters of diesel per month and avoiding 5380 kg of CO2 emissions each month.
