ANHUI GCL: 32,686 kWp
Located in Huaibei, in the province of Anhui, China, this 32,686 kWp floating solar plant is installed on a mine lake with an area of 1,687,554 m² (168 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 116,736 floating solar panels of 60 cells (280W GCL standard modules). The total structure covers 20% of the water surface.
For this project, Ciel & Terre supervised the engineering of the floating PV system and the anchorage. Our scope included:
- Supply of our Hydrelio® (made in China) and design of the floating platform
- Design, supply and installation of the anchoring solution
Anchored at the bottom of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 12.5 m depth while dealing with a 4.7-m water level variation.
Anhui GCL’s floating solar plant has been operational since January 2018 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
