Solar Thermal Installation at Brynich Caravan Club, Brecon



Two shower blocks at Brynich Caravan Club site in Brecon have been fitted with Kingspan Solar collectors, designed and installed by Ecofit Energy Systems. Each shower block is fitted with an 18 square metre array of Kingspan HP400 high efficiency evacuated tube collectors, with Type V sloping kits, for direct on slate roof fixing. The solar arrays are linked via a Kingspan Duo-stream pump station to the bottom solar coils of 2 x 1,000 litre stainless steel pre-heat cylinders in each block.

The HP400 tubes are fitted with in-built temperature limitation devices to prevent overheat in the primary solar circuit, and each system is controlled by a Stecca SC400 controller.
