SAKASAMA IKE: 2,313 kWp
Located in Hyogo prefecture, Japan, this 2,313 kWp floating solar plant installed on an irrigation reservoir with an area of 71,200 m² (7.1 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 9,072 floating solar panels of 60 cells (255W KYOCERA standard modules). The total structure covers 37% of the water surface.
For this project, Ciel & Terre supervised the project development and the engineering of the floating PV structure and the anchorage. Our scope included:
- Management of project development
- Supply of our Hydrelio® (made in Japan) and design of the floating platform
- Design of the anchoring solution
Anchored at the bottom of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 4.5 m depth and a same water level variation (4.5 m, as the pond can be affected by drought).
Sakasama Ike’s floating solar plant has been operational since May 2015 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
