WALDEN POND: 74 kWp
Located in Walden (Colorado, USA), this 74 kWp floating solar plant is installed on a water treatment reservoir with an area of 1,320 m² (0.1 ha).
The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 208 floating solar panels of 72 cells (355W Jinko Solar standard modules). The total structure covers 52% 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 and supply of the anchoring solution
Anchored to the shores of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 1.5 m depth and a same water level variation (1.5 m, as the pond can be affected by drought).
Walden’s floating solar plant has been operational since October 2018 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
