Floating Solar Parks
Why floating solar panels?
Floating solar parks or Floating PV are installations of solar panels on the water. This technique maximizes the energy collection of your water surface. Floating solar parks on lakes, ponds and basins prevent algae formation and also yield more than rooftop installations, because of the reflection of the sunlight on the water and the cooling by the water. Is the basin also your reservoir for agroculture or industrial applications? Add to that a third advantage: floating pv counters evaporation.Contact our experts
ZEN, Sunrock and K3 jointly developed the Lingemeer project. The area, about 200 hectares in size, has changed in 20 years from an agricultural area to a natural water recreation area. The area becomes more sustainable by means of its own generated energy. The project offers a solution to responsibly generate energy without affecting the landscape or ecology.
It is super important that there are no algae in that water. Normally we use large cloths to protect the water for this. If you place floating solar panels on it, we will again combine some elements in a progressive way to make sustainability
Water is becoming more expensive every day due to global warming. Greenhouse builders and farmers would do well to store their water in basins, or to use their ponds as a source of water and energy. After all, tap water is too expensive and groundwater is not always available. Moreover, you can’t pump up water without limits. We have to switch from one-off to circular water use.
