Maeno Ike – 848 kWp – Floating Solar Panels
This floating solar plant of 848 kWp is installed on an irrigation pond for rice agriculture, located in Ono city, Hyogo prefecture, Kansai, Japan.
The Hydrelio® floating solar system supports 3,392 panels (250W YINGLI modules), and covers about 40 % of the water surface (2.43 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 2 m and a level variation of 2 m.
The grid connection was effective in September 2014.
