Alto Rabagao – 218 kWp – Hydro-PV Hybrid System
This floating solar plant of 218 kWp is installed on a hydroelectric dam, located in Montalegre, Portugal.
The Hydrelio® floating solar system supports 840 panels (260W REC modules), and covers about 0.01 % of the water surface (2,212 ha).
For this project, Ciel & Terre® operated as EPC (Engineering Procurement and Construction). We were in charge of Hydrelio® supply, solar island and anchoring system design, and construction and electrical work supervision. The bottom anchoring was designed to meet a maximum depth of 90 m and a level variation of 30 m.
The grid connection was effective in November 2016.
