In 2008, FKHA designed and implemented a modern solar system at the oldest Christian monastery in the world at St. Antony Monastery, Red Sea, Egypt. The project was implemented in two phases as follows.
St. Antony Monastery 334 km southeast of Cairo (See here)
The monastery initially stated that the energy requirement was 500 kW. It was the project planning task to determine the actual need and all possible savings, since the monastery could not measure the need at all. It was more or less estimated from the connected values of the individual customers.
The project planning was based on a maximum requirement of 300 kW and an average requirement of 220 kW.
The project was implemented in two phases. This was mainly due to the fact that it was not easy to finance such a large system in one step, and the monastery also had to familiarize itself with the use of solar technology for the first time. For a 300 kW solar system with control, a financial requirement of between € 600,000 and € 700,000 was estimated
The FKHA association was founded in Munich specifically for the project planning:
"The Circle of Friends of St. Antonius"
