Wagner Solar UK to Open UK Based Solar Thermal Heating Division

Dan Oliver - head of the solarthermal division of Wagner Solar UK Ltd.

London, 14th June 2011
Wagner Solar UK Ltd, the UK branch of German solar power and solar heating supplier, system integrator and manufacturer Wagner & Co Solar Technology announces plans to set up a solar thermal space heating division here in the UK.

The division will be headed by Dan Oliver, who is already a veteran at Wagner Solar where he was previously a member of the PV sales team.

The company will introduce the industry leading Wagner & Co flat plate thermal collector which is manufactured in Germany. The product is made using the latest precision engineering techniques to culminate in a product which minimises the energy loss and maximises the accumulated heat. Wagner Solar will offer various product options which will range from a single collector plate to a complete package including a dual coil solar cylinder. 

Wagner Solar UK has built its brand based on a commitment to product quality and safe installation. The PV division already has a strong reputation for its specifying service where sales personnel use the company’s bespoke software to calculate the right product and system configuration, a service which installers find particularly beneficial for choosing the right roof mounting solution. Commenting on plans for the thermal division, Oliver had the following to say, “We very much intend to follow the same philosophy as the PV division and continue to offer our specifying service also for our thermal products. Installers of collector plates must consider the same basic principles as PV installers, such as consideration for the roof age and material as well as the frequency and intensity of extreme wind and snow, for assurance that the system is mounted with no danger to the surrounding area. Solar heating is still an emerging industry in the UK, so we intend to apply our knowledge and help installers with the pre-installation calculations, so they can concentrate on the most important thing, which is getting the installation right.”

Wagner Solar UK has recently launched a solar training school to provide product and installation training for MCS registered installers. Known as the Wagner Academy, there are plans to incorporate thermal training later in the year.

The company will be exhibiting at the Greenbuild Expo, the UK’s leading professional event dedicated to sustainable refurbishment and building, taking place at Manchester Central on 29-30 June. They can be found at stand C17, where a range of solar thermal and solar PV products will be on display.
