Floating PV Power Plants

Avenston has the necessary technical knowledge of floating solar photovoltaic (FPV) technology and vast cooperates with leading world suppliers of solutions for this type of solar power plants. The popularity of this technology is growing every year resulting in more and more installations worldwide. Our goal is to combine our expertise and existing strengths in utility-scale and commercial solar energy with the specific know-hows and services of our partners.

The development and construction of floating PV systems present different challenges due to hydrodynamic loads on the structure, risk of corrosion and additional components to be designed, installed, and maintained, such as the floats, the anchors, and the mooring lines. Floating solar’s design isn’t a typical one and is highly dependent on the location, size, type of water body, type of structure, and environmental conditions. A professional site-specific design and implementation will help to reduce risks for new floating solar projects.

 

Our service offerings include the following:

  • Technical consulting and advisory
  • Energy yield analysis
  • Technical feasibility studies
  • Engineering design
  • Tendering support
  • Procurement
  • Construction and commissioning
  • Owner’s engineering and independent engineering
  • Turnkey EPC or BoS services
  • Technical due diligence
  • Operations and maintenance
  • Failure analysis

Floating solar power plants have huge potential. While available land has been used heavily for the installation of ground-mounted solar plants, a water surface still remains mainly untouched. The combination of commercial activities in seas, lakes, reservoirs, hydro dams and canals, with renewable power generation is making the business case for floating solar extremely attractive.

Avenston offers necessary services and newest innovative solutions for floating PV projects in Europe and MENA countries. Our FPV systems present no risks or dangers to wildlife and surrounding habitats when implemented. Furthermore, the natural cooling effect provided by the water allows the PV panels to operate more efficiently and produce more power than traditional ground-mounted systems.
