At February 5th Aventa opened its new production line for solar collectors. More than 50 invited partners and business contacts were present for a demonstration of how fast and effective an AventaSolar collector can be produced
Solar energy company Aventa AS has invested in a brand new state of the art production line for its solar collectors. The production system has been produced by FILL in Austria, a leading plant manufacturer for diverse branches of industry. The new system automatizes essential parts of the production process for Aventa, reproducibly secures a high part quality level, as well as an annual capacity for 40 000 m2 solar collectors per shift.
In this first book devoted to the topic, Part One explains the basics for those in the plastics industry, while Part Two introduces solar thermal experts to polymers. Part Three combines both fields, discussing demands on durability, design and building integration."

'We are moving quickly into a reality where facades produce energy' says CEO Sjur Elling Hana in Hubro AS, one of the largest suppliers of roof and facade products in Norway. The production of hot water through solar collectors integrated in the walls and ceilings is provided by the company Aventa. This is very cost effective solutions that will provide positive contributions in buildings with high consumption of hot water, says Hana.
Aventa's polymeric collector is presented at The National Museum – Architecture May 6th – August 21st 2011, as part of the exhibition "SPOR Norwegian architecture 2005‐2010". The aim of the exhibition is to communicate developing architectural qualities in Norway today, and to point out new trends of architecture making social impact.
One of the main arguments for introduction of polymer materials in solar collectors is the potential for reducing costs due to different processing and manufacturing methods compared to conventional flat plate collectors. Aventa aims to reduce the processing cost by introduction of a new extrusion die.
