This week, Austria's largest solar thermal plant was officially opened in Friesach, Kärnten. The solar park, having the size of a football field, with 436 large-area collectors on 5,750 square metres, is expected to produce 2.5 million kWh of heat per year. This will cover a 100% of the annual hot water demand, thus, in the transitional period, the heating needs of approximately 500 district heating customers in Friesach.Read more
Coil material for electrical transformers need inter-lap insulation. Traditionally, paper has fulfilled this role. With MIRO® Volt, our insulation-coated aluminium strip, the need for the additional paper insulation is removed. MIRO® Volt aluminium strip offers you a step-up into the future of transformers. Due to the more compact winding and the special insulation, it is possible to build transformers that are considerably more compact and efficient. Read more

Our core competence, the creation of products with strong performance, creates the ideal conditions for effective use in energy generation. Our partner companies benefit equally from our efficient surfaces, Read more
Aluminium is a suitable candidate in electrical engineering due to its low density, good electrical and thermal conductivity, all at a reasonable stable raw material price. Aluminium is already in use in the electrical industry today, especially when the joins need welding. Read more
The Solar Thermal sector is strongly committed towards bringing positive change to our world and to our societies. It aims to reduce EU’s energy needs and striving for a cost-efficient approach to clean, affordable and competitive solutions. In order to accelerate this goal, Solar Heat Europe has launched a petition calling on European, national, regional, and local policy makers to take decisive action.Read more
Bacteria and viruses are rapidly killed on metallic copper surfaces. While the phenomenon was already known in ancient times, it is currently receiving renewed attention.
The surfaces we touch in our daily routine can be a vector of transmission. Indeed, the virus that causes Covid-19 can persist on plastic and stainless steel for up to three days. This only underlines the importance of continually disinfecting and cleaning surfaces that are frequently touched.
By simply changing the texture of the surfaces we use, or coating them with substances that kill bacteria and viruses more quickly, it is possible to defeat infectious organisms before they even get into our bodies. Read more
Kiruna, a town in northern Sweden, is on the move. Located in Lapland, the town and many of its 23.000 residents are being relocated 3 kilometers to the east to prevent it slowly being swallowed by an underground mine. The huge relocation project started in 2014 with the goal to construct a new town center, municipal buildings and around 3,000 new homes. Kiruna Town Hall, designed by Danish studio Henning Larsen, is the first building completed as part of Kiruna’s relocation.Read more
Airborne microbial diseases represent one of the major challenges to global public health. The most common examples are influenza, appearing in seasonal and epidemic forms, the current Corona virus (COVID-19), as well as bacterial diseases such as tuberculosis, which are emerging in increasingly multi-drug resistant forms.
