Hirai Ike – 1125 kWp – Floating Panels in Japan
This floating solar plant of 1,125 kWp is installed on an irrigation pond, located in Nara prefecture, Japan.
The Hydrelio® floating solar system supports 4,500 panels (250W TRINA modules), and covers about 65 % of the water surface (1.95 ha).
For this project, Ciel & Terre® was in charge of Hydrelio® supply, solar island and anchoring system design. The bottom anchoring was designed to meet a maximum depth of 2.7 m and a level variation of 2.7 m.
The grid connection was effective in August 2015.
