Solar Heat Europe is thrilled to welcome its new member, Arcon-Sunmark
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.
