Queen Elizabeth II – 6,338 kWp – Europe’s Largest Floating Solar Farm
This floating solar plant of 6,338 kWp is installed on a drinking water reservoir , located in Walton-on-Thames town, the UK.
The Hydrelio® floating solar system supports 23,046 panels (275W SUNTECH modules), and covers about 5 % of the water surface (128 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 18,4 m and a level variation of 18,4 m.
The grid connection was effective in March 2016.
