OOTSUDA IKE – 973 KWP – FLOATING PV SYSTEM
This floating solar plant of 973 kWp is installed on an irrigation pond, located in Nara prefecture, Japan.
The Hydrelio® floating solar system supports 3,744panels (260W REC modules), and covers about 57 % of the water surface (1.84 ha).
For this project, Ciel & Terre® operated as EPC (Engineering Procurement and Construction). We were in charge of Hydrelio® supply, solar island and anchoring system design, construction supervision, financing, and operation & maintenance. The bottom anchoring was designed to meet a maximum depth of 5.3 m and a level variation of 5.3 m.
The grid connection was effective in August 2017.
