The solar thermal system used by the island resort of Amanpulo has withstood one of the largest typhoons in history
Despite the extreme weather conditions caused by the recent typhoon, the solar thermal system at the island resort of Amanpulo on Pamalican Island in the Philippines has survived and is still operating, according to a recent report. The roof mounted solar collectors are still being fully functional and currently operating. The system was constructed by SunMaxx Solar in partnership with RTD Energy & Power.
“The RTD/SunMaxx solar thermal system survived one of the largest typhoons to hit the Philippines and the biggest to ever hit the resort” said On-site installer Ron Del Valle.
One of the resort’s major concerns during the installation process was the SunMaxx Solar systems ability to withstand stormy weather. According to SunMaxx Solar CEO Adam Farrell, the storm put the system through the ultimate test.
“Hopefully, people will see the benefits of installing a system like this in countries that truly need the help” said Mr Farrell, adding that the residents in these areas can now feel assured that they will still get hot water despite such conditions.
