Dulsco Village is an archetype of new labour camps in U.A.E., which comprises 400 rooms for 4,000 labours, a fully equipped gymnasium, an indoor sports complex with recreation hall, as well as a cricket, football and hockey ground.
The solar water heater system of DULSCO Village is designed as a pressurised system to supply 105,000 litres of showering water on every sunny day. The designated position of the Integrated Storage Collectors was re-aranged and the orientation was optimised to achieve the maximum performance from solar radiation.
The solar water heater system is operating wihtout electricity, which could fail, has no valve, which could clog and requires minimum maintenance. The hot water is circulated by gravity forces and flowing without pump from the Integrated Storage Collectors to the hot water storage tank.
Cleaning of the Integrated Storage Collectors is required during the Winter Season only and after rainfall. During Spring and Autumn the performance of the Integrated Storage Collectors is controlled by efficiency reduction through soiling of the transparent cover.
