New laboratories in Euro-Centrum

Practical completion inspection of the Solar Systems Test Center was performed on Thursday in the Euro-Centrum’s Science and Technology Park. Works conducted by Skanska S.A. have taken ten months.

The Center is housed in a revitalized and extended building covering approximately 860 sq. meres of usable space. The new infrastructure will be occupied by the Training Center of Modern Heating Technology and will be used by producers of heat pumps, solar collectors, ventilation systems and solid fuel boilers. The facility will also feature laboratories of solar systems and collectors to harness the sun’s energy designed for tests – so called “an artificial sun”.

The Center will be provided with a modern test equipment delivered by PSE AG company from Freiburg, Germany – one of the leading centers developing solar technologies which cooperates with Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems, the largest solar energy research institute in Europe. Additionally, PGE will conduct trainings courses for Center’s users this year.

The project is co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund allocated by the European Union.
