MARLENIQUE FARM: 59 kWp

Located in South Africa, this 59 kWp floating solar plant is installed on an agricultural reservoir with an area of 4,215 m² (0.4 ha).

The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 180 modules of 72 cells (330W JINKO SOLAR standard modules). The total structure covers 15% 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 the US) and design of the floating platform
  • Design and supply of the anchoring solution

Anchored to the shores of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 4 m depth and a same water level variation (4 m, the pond could be affected by drought).

 

Marlenique’s floating solar plant has been operational since March 2019 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
