Kawagoe – 696 kWp – Floating PV System
This floating solar plant of 696 kWp is installed on a water retention pond for rice agriculture, located in Kawagoe city, Saitama prefecture, Japan.
The Hydrelio® floating solar system supports 2,730 panels (255W YINGLI modules), and covers about 38 % of the water surface (2.12 ha).
For this project, Ciel & Terre® was in charge of Hydrelio® supply, and solar island and anchoring system design. The bottom anchoring was designed to meet a maximum depth of 3 m and a level variation of 3 m.
