Umenoki – 7,550 kWp – Large Floating Solar Farm
This floating solar plant of 7,550 kWp is installed on an irrigation pond, located in Saitama prefecture, Japan.
The Hydrelio® floating solar system supports 27,456 panels (275W YINGLI modules), and covers about 57 % of the water surface (12.93 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 6.9 m and a level variation of 6.9 m.
The grid connection was effective in October 2015.
