The objective of the project was to offset one part of the fossil fuel consumption of the industrial site of Condat (natural gas in this case) with solar thermal energy. The solar heat plant preheats the make-up water of the factory’s steam boiler, extracted from the Vézère river nearby and up to 80°C/90°C. This heat supply is competitive with the fossil fuels alternative of the consumer site, in order to keep the factory competitive on its markets.
