Floating PV

Sun and water – a strong duo

Floating solar systems are state-of-the-art. In terms of structure, floating PV is similar to solar power plants on land. However, each module must be mounted individually on a floating platform. The plant is connected to the shore by floating, seawater-resistant power cables. A system of anchors and moorings ensures that the power plant is held in position.

With benchmark projects such as our floating systems in Gan HaShomron or Ma’ayan Tzvi, we are now at the forefront of a rapidly growing industry. Our customers benefit from extensive know-how and a proven track record.

Experience meets track record

As one of the leading EPC providers, we harness our experience and transfer it from the ground to the water. With several benchmark projects in Israel, one of our main markets, we have proven ourselves at the forefront of a fast-growing industry. From complicated on-site conditions to different floating structures – our experts bring extensive know-how about floating PV.

Designed for maximum yields

We plan and install our floating systems with one goal: Reliable electricity with highest yields. Therefore we pay attention to the efficient positioning of inverters and transformers right from the start. In this way, we do not only save production costs, we also prevent yield losses. Our system design is always based specifically on the customer’s requirements and the on-site conditions.

Optimised and safe anchoring

We rely on an optimised and secure anchoring design. Whether under or above water – we are experienced in anchoring a wide variety of floating systems. During the construction phase but also far beyond, the health and safety of everyone involved is particularly important to us. A strong focus on Health, Safety and Environment runs through all of our company processes.

Advantages of Floating PV

No competition for space

In contrast to conventional solar power plants, no building land has to be acquired, leased or prepared for the PV system. The plants therefore do not compete with food or animal feed production.

Despite high population density

Floating PV systems open up new possibilities for customers in countries with a high population density where the available building land is fiercely contested.

Increased efficiency

The water inherently cools the solar modules. Floating systems can therefore be more efficient than those on land.

Minimized water evaporation

By covering the water surfaces, solar modules can protect the respective water bodies from excessive evaporation. Therefore they can prevent those water bodies from dying.

High electricity yields

Floating solar systems benefit from significantly less shading of the modules than solar plants on land. This ensures higher electricity yields.

Nature stays nature

Floating PV systems are not usually built in local recreation areas. Rather, the areas used cannot be experienced by the public anyway. These include, for example, quarry lakes.
