The 1st PTC system for industrial process heat in Cyprus
The aim of this workshop is to show the potential of using PTC system in Cyprus industries and to inform about planning and operation of the first plant of this type in the island.
Cyprus has excellent direct normal irradiance (DNI) resources of up to 2200 kWh/m2, making the parabolic trough collector (PTC) the perfect system for energy production at high temperature. The PTC system can exploit solar energy to produce steam or hot water at the required temperature for the industrial sector and reduce its fuel consumption.

About KEAN Soft Drinks’ Factory
KEAN is one of the biggest soft drinks industries in Cyprus, where the first PTC system for industrial process heat in Cyprus has been successfully installed and is now in operation. In combination with an implemented concrete thermal energy storage (C-TES), the system enables dispatchable steam supply and satisfies the thermal energy needs even in the winter period.
About Concentrated Solar Thermal
The C-TES constructed by CADE (Solid-TES) covers a constant thermal demand and delivers thermal energy during all the productive period. It consists of four concrete blocks with embedded tube bundles and can be operated with different operational targets.
