Floating solar power plants refers to a solar power production mounted on a structure that floats on a body of water, typically an artificial basin or a lake.
Scotra, as a company specializing in the design, manufacture, and construction of floating structure on water, kickstarted project of a 25MW PV plant on the Namjeong lake in South Korea’s Jeonnam Province, along the country’s southern coast. Work is now underway to deliver what is being billed as South Korea’s largest floating solar plant to date. An installation combining steel structures with polyethylene floats. PV modules will be then rolled out atop POSCO’s alloy steel structures, which Scotra claims as the cheaper solution compared to aluminium yet highly resistant to corrosion. The plant will generate enough solar output to cover the needs of 12,000 households and bring annual CO2 emission savings of 14,000 tonnes, Scotra said.
