Opticube is a new concept of solar thermal system making solar heat easier to afford and to install .
All the complexity and hydraulics elements are integrated into a sea container, which makes it easy to transport, install and deploy on site (a 100m² Opticube can be deployed in one day). As all the technical parts are pre-mounted and tested in a workshop, it avoids functioning problems and little maintenance is needed. This solar thermal system allows reducing fossil fuels which are used for heat production. The purpose of the Opticube is to meet large heat demand, for example: hygienic water demands in collective housings, or industrial process.
- •95 % less CO2 than gas boiler for producing the same heat
- •40% less expensive compared to a classic solar thermal system
