Hungary's HAJDU hopes to sell several hundred of its recently launched heat buffers - tanks that store heat generated by solar panels or boilers - this year and several thousand in 2011, CEO Anna Novotni Dede told MTI.
Right now the product is only available in Hungary, but HAJDU is in talks with foreign partners, Novotni Dede said.
HAJDU, which started making solar-powered water heaters in 2008, won the 2010 Hungarian Product Grand Prix for the heat buffer it designed itself.
HAJDU had revenue of HUF 9.5 billion in 2009 and expects about the same in 2010. It exports about half of its products to countries in Western Europe, mainly Germany, France, Belgium and Spain.
The company employs 650 people. (MTI – Econews)
