The pilot plant in Melegnano (Milano) was installed in 1999 on a public swimming pool and partially financed by the European Community. 200 square metres of solar collectors provide heat for both the hot water system (81 MWh/a) and the swimming pool (42 MWh/a). The performance of the plant has been monitored accurately during the first year. A solar performance guarantee (at least 500 kWh/sqm) was available for the first twelve months of operation, whereas the calculated heat production had been estimated to about 615 kWh/sqm. The plant has been planned according to large scale criteria (large collector modules, low flow). The total system costs amount to about 625 €/m².
