NOFAR: 22 kWp

Located in Israel, this 22 kWp floating solar power plant is installed on a water storage reservoir with an area of 49,800 m² (4.9 ha). 

The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 85 floating solar panels of 60 cells (260W HANWHA standard modules). The total structure covers 0.8% 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 France) and design of the floating platform
  • Design of the anchoring solution 

Anchored at the banks of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 9 m depth and a same water level variation (9 m, as the pond can be affected by drought). 

Nofar’s floating solar plant has been operational since November 2015 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
