TAOYUAN: 481 kWp
Located in the District of Xinwu, Taiwan, this 481 kWp floating solar plant is installed on a water retention dam with an area of 41,439 m² (4.1 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 1,632 floating solar panels of 60 cells (295W GINTUNG standard modules). The total structure covers 11% 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 Taiwan) and design of the floating platform
- Design of the anchoring solution
Anchored to the shores of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 4.6 m depth and a same water level variation (4.6 m, as the pond can be affected by drought).
Taoyuan’s floating solar plant has been operational since March 2017 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
