Hirono Nigo Ike – 1,261 kWp – Solar on Water with Hydrelio®
This floating solar plant of 1,261 kWp is installed on an irrigation pond, located in Hyogo prefecture, Japan.
The Hydrelio® floating solar system supports 4,760 panels (265W LIGHTWAY SOLAR modules), and covers about 68 % of the water surface (1.97 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 4.5 m and a level variation of 4.5 m.
The grid connection was effective in September 2017.
