Floating solar is a rapidly booming market, with an increasing number and size of installations worldwide. Anchoring and mooring of floating solar power plants is a key component to ensure safe and reliable installations, which should be designed to withstand location specific environmental loads. Attend this webinar to learn more about this topic and how the newly published Recommended Practice DNV-RP-0584 can contribute to a safe design and operation of your floating solar plant and to hear from industry experts about the most crucial challenges and the available solutions for anchoring and mooring.
Floating solar power is a promising renewable energy technology in which solar PV panels are installed on floating structures on the surface of suitable bodies of water. The technology offers great potential for green energy production, particularly in areas where there is a shortage of available land for large photovoltaic plants.
DNV has published the world’s first Recommended Practice for floating solar power projects following a collaborative Joint Industry Project involving 24 industry participants. The Recommended Practice (DNV-RP-0584) provides commonly recognized guidance based on a list of technical requirements for accelerating safe, sustainable and sound design, development, operation and decommissioning of floating solar photovoltaic projects.
Focus of this webinar
Floating solar systems help landowners benefit from otherwise underused bodies of water, such as flooded mines, irrigation ponds, hydro-dam reservoirs. Development of floating solar projects may prove more complex than traditional ground-mounted projects. Hear lessons learnt from companies that have already developed floating solar plants, in the US and worldwide, with a specific focus on how these can be applied to the promising and still untapped US floating solar market.
