with customized solutions for your floating solar projects

Customized solutions for your floating solar projects

Over the years, Ciel & Terre has gained a recognized expertise and a strong experience in the installation of large-scale floating PV plants on artificial and fresh water reservoirs. Our team has a thorough understanding of floating PV’s challenges and is able to assist you all along the project development process by providing a large range of services in most countries we work in.

The expertise we directly share with our clients encompasses:

  • Feasibility study,
  • Engineering design (including Hydrelio® floating
    structure and anchoring),
  • Supply of anchoring systems,
  • Construction training and supervision,
  • Consulting and financing solutions,
  • Operation and maintenance support.

Hydrelio® is not a single product but a stand-alone solution. At Ciel & Terre, we opened an alternative to land use conflicts to respond efficiently to the growing energy needs around the world. Floating solar opportunities are plural and the concept is applicable to many types of waterbodies, that requires other challenges compared to traditional solar.

Our Hydrelio® system has been developed to fit with those different applications and to deal with water-related specificities. In consequence, we are not only system suppliers, but we engineer solutions and services and provide consulting services in the field of our expertise to offer you the best experience in the development of your floating solar project.

Discover our core activity and floating solar experts

In addition to the supply of our technology, we bring to our clients our technical expertise which embraces services, such as R&D and manufacturing, project management and construction. Our businesses and issues are targeted to follow the direction of energy transition and sustainable development.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Since the birth of our ‘solar, on water’ concept, Hydrelio®, in 2011, we have been constantly investing in R&D to optimize and develop new floating PV systems.

We have a dedicated team to better comprehend the floating PV challenges while proposing innovative and adapted solutions (floating platform, anchoring, fixing system, configuration) to site specificities and our clients’ requirements.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

Our team of business developers is the focal point between our clients and our engineering and construction teams to implement your project.

Present locally in 10 countries and in 15 additional countries through business partners, we ensure you a privileged contact in your region to accompany you all along the development of your floating solar plant.

DESIGN DIVISION

The mission of our design experts is to study the technical feasibility of your project and deliver you a detailed design of the whole floating PV array, including the anchoring and basic electrical sizing.

Each project is unique, that is why we design customized solutions as close as our clients’ requirements while dealing with site-specificities and technical constraints to guarantee you a long-lasting solution.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

In relation with our business developers, once a site is identified and secured, our engineering team oversees the management of your project from design to connection of the plant.

Our mission is to coordinate all steps of your project together, respond to your concerns and connect with all the main operating stakeholders.

INDUSTRY & PROCUREMENT

Hydrelio® technology is an industrialized system and is manufactured in each area where Ciel & Terre is established. We ensure a local manufacturing to be the closest to the project’s implementation.

Prior to the delivery of our floats on site, the quality and traceability of the material is guaranteed by our product engineers who supervise all stages of the manufacturing process.

CONSTRUCTION DIVISION

The construction is the key stage in the completion of your project. That is why, our experienced experts will accompany you and your partners during all the process.

They will propose customized and long-lasting solutions, for anchorage specifically, and offer assistance with guidelines and training sessions.
