HIRONO NIGO IKE: 1,261 kWp
Located in Miki, in the prefecture of Hyogo, Japan, this 1,261 kWp floating solar plant is installed on an irrigation pond with an area of 19,718 m² (1.9 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 4,760 floating solar panels of 60 cells (260W LIGHTWAY SOLAR standard modules). The total structure covers 68% of the water surface.
For this project, Ciel & Terre supervised the engineering of the floating PV system. Our scope included:
- Supply of our Hydrelio® (made in Japan) and design of the floating platform
- Design of the anchoring solution
Anchored at the bottom of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 4.5 m depth and a same water level variation (4.5 m, as the pond can be affected by drought).
Hirono Nigo Ike’s floating solar plant has been operational since September 2017 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
