Using solar energy, the water is heated to 26 ° C

Woltow, Germany

At Woltow, Mecklenburg Vorpommern, a solar parabolic trough system is combined together with a straw steam boiler. The hybrid plant provides a breeding fish (African catfish) farm, with enough heat to maintain the optimum required water temperature (approximately 26 ° C) for the fish tank. Moreover, electricity is also produced from the steam using a special turbine.
