ORLANDO UTILITIES: 32 kWp
Located in Orlando (Florida, USA), this 32 kWp floating solar plant is installed on an irrigation reservoir with an area of 12,240 m² (1 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 100 modules of 72 cells (315W RENESOLA standard modules). The total structure covers 3% 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, supply and installation of the anchoring solution
Anchored on the bottom of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 3.0 m depth while dealing with a 0.5-m water level variation.
OUC’s floating solar plant has been operational since February 2017 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
