    In the framework of a project co-funded by ministerial notice, SEA invested and realized a solar heating plant to produce heat for the swimming pool and hot water. 80 vacuum collectors have been installed and are expected to produce at least 140.000 kWh per year of thermal energy. Heat is exchanged in a heat exchanger and delivered to the swimming pool, while domestic hot water is produced and stored into three boilers 2.000 litres each. A management system allows SEA to check all the relevant plant parameters, energy consumption and production, to verify that the energy production complains with what expected. An EPC contract between SEA and the Municipality of Atessa, as the owner of the swimming pool, states that the plants must provide at least 140.000 kWh of thermal energy per year, otherwise the annual payment to SEA would reduce. During the first six years, that minimum level has always been reached, apart from 2012 because of an incredible series of snowing days. This project has been used and approved in the Certification Scheme for ESCO required by the Italian standard UNI CEI 11352
