SolarWall® dla obiektów wojskowych

fort drum us military solarwallUS Army Corps of Engineers uznało system SolarWall® za jedną z najbardziej opłacalnych technologii solarnych, która doskonale nadaje się na użytek budynków wojskowych. Magazyny, garaże, warsztaty, hangary dla samolotów i helikopterów etc. wymagają dużej wentylacji. Ogrzewanie łączy się z wysokimi kosztami. Z tego powodu SolarWall® jest regularnie adaptowany na potrzeby prac modernizacyjnych i do nowopowstających obiektów w budownictwie wojskowym.

Amerykańska baza wojskowa Fort Drum (NY) stanowi największe na świecie skupienie obiektów wyposażonych w system słonecznego podgrzewania powietrza SolarWall® (50 systemów SolarWall® na 27 budynkach, w sumie 10.220 m2). Łącznie produkowane są 4MW energii cieplnej. Roczne oszczędności w zużyciu paliwa sięgają 44 bilionów BTU/h (46,000 GJ); emisja CO2 zmniejszyła się o 2.000 ton.

System SolarWall® został zainstalowany w wielu innych amerykańskich bazach wojskowych, takich jak Fort Carson, Norfolk Naval Base, Edwards Air Force Base, Fort Huachuca, Fort Lewis, Peterson Air Force Base,  Buckley Air Force Base, a także w bazach kanadyjskich, CFB Suffield i CFBWainwright. 

Examples of U.S. Military SolarWall Installations


United States Army

SolarWall Military US Fort DrumFort Drum, NY

The SolarWall® systems at Fort Drum represent the largest collection of solar air heated buildings in the world. The total collector area is around 110,000 ft2 (10,200m2), spread over 27 buildings with 99 fans being used to deliver 300,000 cfm of air. New air makeup fans and distribution ducting were also installed to improve the ventilation air in some of the older facilities, which also allows for additional destratification savings to be realized. Projected fuels savings are 44,000 million BTU/h (46,000 GJ) per year, with annual CO2 reductions of 2,000 tons. This highlights the significance of the project, and potential of the technology when it is used on a large scale.
 

SolarWall Military US Fort Huachuca

Fort Huachuca, AZ

Black SolarWall systems were installed on two hangars at this Arizona base. The solar air heating system was part of an overall mandate by the U.S. Army to reduce fuel costs on the base by using renewable energy. The system also provides the required ventilation air for the buildings. 
 

 

 

SolarWall Military US Fort Carson

Fort Carson, CO

Officials at Fort Carson had a mandate to conserve energy and save money. This lead to the specification of a SolarWall heating and ventilation systems on the base’s main helicopter hangar. At the time of the installation, it was projected to save the U.S. Army $14,000 each year (using 1997 gas prices) in reduced heating costs. In the summer of 2006, three more SolarWall systems were installed on vehicle maintenance buildings at the base, bringing the total collector area to around 17,400 ft2 (1,620 m2).
 

SolarWall Military US Fort Lewis

Fort Lewis, WA

This SolarWall installation was completed in the summer of 2006 at Fort Lewis in Washington state. The solar system was integrated into the south wall of a maintenance building and assists the base in lowering fuel costs.

 

 

 

United States Air Force

SolarWall Military US Elmendorf AFB

Elmendorf Air Force Base, AK

Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage, Alaska is home to 2 SolarWall systems installed on the west and east sides of the 3rd Logistics Readiness Squadron. The east SolarWall system pre-heats fresh air intake for the boiler room,  and the west system heats incoming make-up air which is distributed via a fan and flexible ducting system. The combined SolarWall systems measure over 4,100ft2 in size, and were installed in the fall of 2008.
 

SolarWall Military US Edwards

Edwards Air Force Base, CA

This California base was outfitted with a SolarWall system as part of an energy efficiency upgrade program. The thermal system heats the incoming ventilation air, and has also helped overcome the problem of negative pressure in the hangar.  As a result of all the energy upgrades, the base was named the recipient of the Presidential Award for Federal Energy Management and was designated as a Federal Energy Saver Showcase Facility by the U.S. Department of Energy.
 

SolarWall Military US Buckley

Buckley Air Force Base, CO

SolarWall systems were installed on multiple walls on a large hangar building at this Colorado base to reduce heating costs by providing free solar heat and ventilation air. 
 

 

 



United States Navy 

SolarWall Military US Norfolk

Norfolk Naval Base, VA

Norfolk was one of the first bases to participate in a federal program aimed at reducing energy consumption at federal facilities using solar energy. In 1997, two maintenance building at the base were outfitted with SolarWall heating systems.
