KOBE OIKE & GONO IKE: 2,415 kWp

Kobe Oike – 1,212 kWp | Gono Ike – 1,203 kWp

Located in Kobe area, in the prefecture of Hyogo, Japan, this project is composed of 2 separate plants, each having respectively a capacity of 1,212 kWp and 1,203kWp. The both floating PV power plants are installed on irrigation reservoirs and equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology. The full installation totalizes 9,468 floating solar panels of 60 cells (250W REC standard modules).

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

 

The both floating solar plants have been operational since May 2016 and generate green electricity to the local grid.

 

  • Kobe Oike

With a capacity of 1,212 kWp, the total structure covers 15% of the pond’s water surface which the area is equal to 84,400 m² (8 ha). The floating platform is anchored on the bottom of the pond, and the anchoring system has been designed to meet a maximum 5.6 m depth while dealing with a 3-m water level variation.

  • Gono Ike

With a capacity of 1,203 kWp, the total structure covers 32% of the pond’s water surface which the area is equal to 39,900 m² (4 ha). The floating platform is anchored on the bottom of the pond, and the anchoring system has been designed to meet a maximum 5.6 m depth while dealing with a 3-m water level variation.
