Navitron Solar Showers at Glastonbury 2009

Glastonbury Festival has set one of the highest standards of how a festival can be run in an eco-friendly manner. Navitron have been asked to return for their third consecutive year to provide solar powered, energy efficient showers for the masses.

Housed within a 44’articualted curtain sided trailer, are 12 re-used food quality bulk liquid containers, each holding 1,000 litres of water. The water is heated during the day by 20 banks of solar heating tubes (delivering up to 210kW of heat per day), and during the night by a 70,000 BTU wood burner. Over the three day festival, the entire rig generates up to 1.2 Megawatts of carbon neutral energy. Behind the trailer, 12 segregated communal showers (six male and six female) are erected on site. To make the unit entirely green, two 350 Watt wind turbines and two 110 Watt solar photovoltaic cells produce the power to run the pumps.
