Floating solar or FPV (Floating photovoltaic), refers to an array of solar panels on a structure that floats on a body of water, typically an artificial basin or a lake. This technology has had rapid growth in the renewable energy market since 2016.
According to PV-Tech news, Chinese state-owned developer CECEP has completed a 70MW floating solar project – the largest in the world – at a former coal-mining area of Anhui Province, China, in collaboration with French floating solar specialist Ciel & Terre.
The project, spread across 13 separate islets on an area of 140 hectares, was completed in late 2018, with grid-connection, tests and commissioning carried out this month at the project site in the Lianghuai mining subsidence area, Yongqiao District, Suzhou City.
A brand new 18km 110V overhead line was also built for the grid connection of the plant, which is expected to generate up to 77,693MWh of electricity in its first year, equivalent to the power consumption of nearly 21,000 households. ——————–***——————–
