REASONS FOR CHOOSING AFLOAT SOLAR

*Land is a scarce commodity and it will become increasingly scarce and price competitive as time progresses when used for ground Solar System types.

 

  • Construction times for Afloat Solar systems compared to Ground or roof mount systems is drastically reduced.

 

  • Flexibility to install our systems on almost any water catchment area repurposes artificial or natural water basins that otherwise would be used specifically for irrigation or fresh water supply or similar.

 

  • Creates valuable purpose to otherwise obsolete water catchments, providing new income streams into many businesses that house such water catchment assets without disrupting any environmental aspect by its use or implementation.

Standard pv plant vs floating pv plant

TRADITIONAL

•Necessity of extensive land

•Purchase or leasing of land

•Limited installation conditions 
(eg shading)

•Reduced efficiency due to high 
ground temperatures

•Environmental pollution

•Deforestation

AFLOAT SOLAR

•Using inactive spaces

•Retraining of disused spaces (quarries, reservoirs, etc.)

•Favorable installation conditions (eg shading prevention)

•Increased efficiency thanks to:

-Refractive use

-Cooling of panels

•Echo system protection

AFLOAT SOLAR APPLICATIONS

Thanks to its modularity and ease of installation, AFLOAT SOLAR floating solar systems can easily be installed in:

  • Industrial Water Systems

  • Cave/Mine lakes

  • Irrigation tanks

  • Desalination/Canal aquaculture surfaces

  • Water treatment plants

  • Fish farms

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS
  • Zero environmental impact

  • Minimizes the evaporation phenomenon 

  • Preserve the existing ecosystem

  • Reduces algae flowering

  • Redevelopment of disused water basins

SOCIAL BENEFITS
  • Recovers contaminated areas by generating clean energy

  • Plots intended for agricultural or other uses are not exploited

ECONOMIC  BENEFITS
  • Converts unused basins to profitable areas

  • Increases efficiency and power generation

  • Reduces connection costs to electricity distribution centres.
