The world's largest solar thermal system, with a collector area of nearly 400,000 square feet (over 36,200 square meters). The system is providing hot water and heat for the entire campus of the Princess Noura bint Abdulrahman University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The campus covers 8 square kilometers (over 3 square miles) and houses 40,000 students and faculty.
Special solar glass as well as a special mounting system for the panels were used to help protect them from the region's sandstorms, which could otherwise ruin the $4.7 million dollar array. The array is nearly twice as large as the previous record holding array, located in Denmark. Panels for the project were built by Austrian manufacturer GREENoneTEC
