Solel Solar Systems Ltd. (Hebrew: סולל) is an Israeli solar thermal equipment designer and manufacturer based in Beit Shemesh, Israel. Solel makes equipment for solar thermal power plants, facilities that use the sun's heat to create steam and turn an electricity generator.
In October 2009, Siemens signed a $418-million contract to buy Solel Solar Systems. As part of the deal, Siemens will leave the company headquarters and some of its manufacturing facilities in Israel for at least five years.
Three years later, Siemens announced plans to sell off the subsidiary.
