Pilot project Oostvoornse Meer
Within Floating Energy, the floating PV solution with floating solar islands continues to develop. We participated in the trial on the Oostvoornse Meer. Three systems are being tested on their performance in terms of yield, ecologic impact and stormworthiness.
The trial is conducted by TNO in collaboration with SABIC, Equinor and the municipality of Westvoorne. Floating energy has entered into a partnership with Solaris Float and the Protev system. Again, we have choosen for a sun-tracking system. The system succesfully weather the first storms of August 2020!
All floating system are being monitored and analyzed. In this way, reasearch is being done on the electrical performance, reliability and the effect on water quality.
