SHIP 2015: a program designed for the process industries

Montpellier, France  –  September 15th, 2015



The SHIP 2015 program has been conceived in order to provide process industries with directly applicable information, especially experience feedback from operating commercial projects as well as technical data documentation. To increase the value of your day, the organizers decided to gather at the same place the key people, companies and competences for your solar heat project from A to Z, bringing technical expertise and funding solutions.
