SAKURAKAMI IKE: 1,992 kWp

Located in Hyogo prefecture, Japan, this 1,992 kWp floating solar plant is installed on an irrigation reservoir with an area of 70,406 m² (7 ha).

The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 7,810 modules of 60 cells (255W YINGLI standard modules). The total structure covers 35% 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 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 8.4 m depth and a same water level variation (8.4 m, as the pond can be affected by drought).

 

Sakurakami Ike’s floating solar plant has been operational since December 2016 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
