No one knows more about large-scale solar heating plants than us. Since 1974 we have installed hundreds of thousands m2 of solar collectors in a great variety of locations – and early 2016 our installations surpassed 1 million m2 collector surface installed in district heating plants, breweries, mines and in the greenhouse industry.
Arcon-Sunmark is a merger between two of the world’s leading companies within large-scale solar heating – ARCON Solar and Sunmark. ARCON Solar was established in 1974 in Skørping, Denmark and was a pioneer in the large-scale solar thermal industry, with a special focus on solutions for district heating. ARCON Solar has installed the largest large-scale solar thermal systems in Europe. Based on more than 25 years of experience and know-how, Sunmark was established in 2008 on the isle of Ærø, Denmark. Sunmark established highly specialized production facilities both in Denmark and in Asia, and installed more than 200,000 m2 of solar heating plants, including the world’s largest solar plant for the mining industry in Chile. In 2015 the two companies joined forces to establish the world’s leading company in this line of business.
WE HAVE THE MOST EFFICIENT COLLECTORS
We have the most efficient and durable collectors. They simply provide more value for money than any other solar collectors. The advanced construction (including a special foil between absorber and glass and an extra thick layer of insulation), will increase the efficiency by as much as 20%. For special purposes we have special collectors.
WE GUARANTEE THE PERFORMANCE
We are not afraid to provide a performance guarantee on our installations.
WE CAN PROVE IT
Arcon-Sunmark is behind the largest solar thermal installation for industrial process heating in the world – located in Chile. The installation covers a total of 43,920 m2 with an annual output of 80,000 MWh. In addition, we have installed more than 80% of the largest plants in Europe. Consequently, we have the references to prove what we claim.
WE ARE HERE TO STAY
We are as solid and future-proof as can be. Arcon-Sunmark is owned by VKR Holding. In total, VKR Holding’s companies employ some 13,500 people in more than 40 countries. VKR Holding owns companies which bring daylight, fresh air and a better environment into people’s everyday lives. We always choose the most solid and reliable partners. Like Energia Llaima in Chile.
WE DELIVER HIGH QUALITY, AT LOW COST
Arcon-Sunmark is a Danish company with a global footprint. Denmark has always been a frontrunner when it comes to sustainable energy, and we lead the way in solar thermal installations. We will never compromise on quality. Design, development and a large part of our production is based in Denmark. However, with our modern production facilities in Vietnam, we have gained a logistic advantage and an international presence being closer to the market, wherever our customers reside. Shorter transportation of heavy equipment and materials combined with quicker service are just a few of the benefits towards the environment and our international customers.
