REEDERS: 50 kWp
Located in the county of Norfolk (England, UK), this 50 kWp floating solar plant is installed on an irrigation reservoir with an area of 20,218 m² (2 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 192 floating solar panels of 60 cells (260W WINAICO standard modules). The total structure covers 2% 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 France) and design of the floating platform
- Design, supply and installation of the anchoring solution
Anchored on the banks of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 9.3 m depth and a same water level variation (9.3 m, as the pond can be affected by drought).
Reeder reservoir’s floating PV plant has been operational since December 2015 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
