The world’s largest floating solar power plant has been commissioned

The Chinese State Cecep and French CIEL & TERRE completed all the work on the launch of the largest swimming solar power plant for today, with a capacity of 70 MW. Nearby on the same reservoir will soon begin to fully function and another station, with a capacity of 150 MW.

The construction of a project distributed on 13 separate islands on an area of 140 hectares was completed at the end of 2018, and this month the object was connected to the network, conducted tests and put into operation. The site of the complex is located in the area of the flooded mine near the town of Suzhou.

In addition to floating monocrystalline modules, central inverters are also installed on stilts at the coastline of the career in order not to interfere with the work of neighboring farms. Electronic installation support concrete supports and 1,500 screw anchors leaving under the ground to a depth of 8-15 meters.

All floating elements were manufactured in place to reduce transportation costs and provide work to local residents. Additionally, a new power line was built by 110 V, a length of 18 km.

It is expected that in the first year the network will produce 77.69 MWC of energy, which should be enough to meet the needs of about 21 thousand local households.

Despite the fact that the launched complex is currently the world’s largest floating photoelectric station, near the same reservoir there is a solar farm with a capacity of 150 MW. Three Gorges New Energy, which is already partially connected to the power system, and after a full commissioning will be new. leader.
