Kawarayama Ike – 1,428 kWp – Floating Solar in Japan
This floating solar plant of 1,428 kWp is installed on an irrigation pond, located in Hyogo prefecture, Japan.
The Hydrelio® floating solar system supports 5,712 panels (250W SHARP modules), and covers about 23 % of the water surface (6.88 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 6.4 m and a level variation of 6.4 m.
The grid connection was effective in December 2015.
