GODLEY: 2,991 kWp
Located in Godley city (England, UK), this 2,991 kWp floating solar plant is installed on a water treatment reservoir with an area of 50,000 m² (6 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 10,494 floating solar panels of 60 cells (285W JA Solar standard modules). The total structure covers 48% 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 France) and design of the floating platform
- Design, supply and installation of the anchoring solution
Anchored on the banks of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 9.9 m depth and a same water level variation (9.9 m, as the pond can be affected by drought).
Godley’s floating solar plant has been operational since January 2016 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
