CAOGANGWEI: 500 kWp
Located in Changhua, Taiwan, this 500 kWp floating solar plant is installed on a water storage reservoir with an area of 11,863 m² (1.1 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 1,694 floating solar panels of 60 cells (295W RITEK standard modules). The total structure covers 38% 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 Taiwan) and design of the floating platform
- Design, supply and installation of the anchoring solution
Anchored to the banks of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 2.3 m depth while dealing with a 1.8-m water level variation.
Caogangwei’s floating solar plant has been operational since February 2018 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
