We are proud to announce that Shtigen LLC has successfully completed the construction and operation of the largest solar thermal power plant in the Caucasus region. This thermal power plant with a peak heat capacity of 1.5 MW, was constructed at the “Grand Sport” athletic complex in Yerevan, Armenia in order to resolve the facilities thermal hot water cost issues. 14,520 solar water heating vacuum tubes were installed in this plant. For comparison, there are 20-30 vacuum tubes per solar water heater installed for households with 4-6 family members.
