Large-scale floating power plants are necessary for the solar energy to contribute to the energy mix. Floating solar power technology addresses the issue of occupation of large quantities of land which can be utilized for other necessary purposes by farm solar power plants. There are lots of opportunities on inland water bodies like Quarry lakes, dams, irrigation reservoirs, water-treatment sites or lands liable to flooding. possibilities for the installation of floating PV power plants are infinite, and most of the time, they are close to a grid connection points.
Vatsaa energy announced its entry into the power industry with the realization of world’s first concrete based floating solar power plant in India for Kerala State Electricity Board Limited in the year of 2016. The facility was installed on Banasura Sagar Dam, Asia’s first earth Dam and was implemented with most efficient and cost mooring technologies to hold the power plant over the waves.
Our on grid floating solar power plants are constructed in dam reservoirs, lakes, rivers, and in oceans after analysing the geography and climate of the desired location. The plant is anchored so that changes in water level will not affect the stability of the system. The system can withstand heavy winds, rains, snowfall, and even tornadoes.
