HIRONO SHIN IKE: 1,751 kWp
Located in Akashi, in the prefecture of Hyogo, Japan, this 1,751 kWp floating solar plant is installed on an irrigation reservoir with an area of 92,100 m² (9 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 7,005 floating solar panels of 60 cells (250W SHARP standard modules). The total structure covers 54% 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 7.8 m depth while dealing with a 5.1-m water level variation.
Hirono Shin Ike’s floating solar plant has been operational since September 2016 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
