Our main goal is to offer you products of the highest quality, which are based on reliable solutions and, on the other hand, benefit from the latest technological findings. We always have that in mind while determining our new goals and creating new designs. We also care to offer you products of highest efficiency at a reasonable price and make your investment worthy.
Solar energy - highest efficiency environmental protection lowest costs
Solar energy is the fuel that powers our appliances and source of our technological development from the very beginning. Solar energy enables solar collectors to deliver cheap and clean heat, and photovoltaic modules to produce electricity. Heat pumps operate using the heat which surrounds us everywhere we are.
30 years of continous development – from vision to a leading manufacturer
Hewalex was established 30 years ago, long before the renewable energies` market started to develop in Poland. We had a vision that in the future the traditional fuel should be changed to clean, renewable energy – both for economic reasons and to protect the environment. From the very beginning, our priority was to produce high quality and high efficiency solar thermal collectors, which have first been sent to foreign, Western European markets. Nowadays we have our specialized staff of almost 200 qualified people and the experience we gained over the years. We participate in various, innovative investments as well as contribute to international R&D projects related to, for example, solar cooling of buildings.
A leading Polish manufacturer with a strong position on European markets
Hewalex is a leader in Poland in terms of sales of solar thermal collectors, as well as solar equipment and heat pumps. According to IEO report (Institute for Renewable Energy, which monitors Polish solar energy market), Hewalex ranks first in sales of solar thermal collectors. Our products are present and well known in most European countries, with a significant market share in some of them.
Innovative production technologies
First solar collectors in Poland were produced in the late 80s and early 90s, as non-series production. Development of technology and growing market needs brought innovation and advanced production technologies. In Hewalex we adopt those technologies as well as create our own methods and machinery. Our company was the first in Poland to introduce ultrasonic welding as well as laser welding.
Our offer at the beginning of the 1990s – solar thermal collectors and solar systems
Our current offer
Our offer includes: flat plate solar thermal collectors, vacuum tube solar thermal collectors, water heaters for hot domestic water, universal heaters (type „combo”) for central heating support, pumping groups, controllers, monitoring systems, mounting kits for solar collectors, fittings and other solar equipment. Moreover we offer heat pumps suitable for heating hot domestic water as well as for heating buildings.
Innovative and R&D projects
We have long experience in designing and production of systems and appliances based on solar energy. We participate in R&D projects such as SunCool, which uses solar thermal collectors for cooling. Such system was installed in an industrial facility in Karlstad, Sweden. 130 solar collectors with nominal cooling power of 40kW are characterized by high COP efficiency equal 10,6, which means that 1kW of electricity produces 10,6 kW of cool. First year of operation shows that growth of efficiency is possible. The collectors created in the project are combination of flat plate and vacuum tube solar collectors, which use the features of lithium bromide in the process of cooling. The collectors as well as complete laboratory platforms were produced in our facility, in Czechowice-Dziedzice.
More than 150.000 systems installed in Poland and abroad
Over the years our products have been installed in various buildings: small houses, large apartment buildings as well as offices, hotels, industrial facilities, schools and universities, sports halls, swimming pools and many others. Solar thermal systems and heat pumps are used in small and large heating systems.
