Netherlands largest floating solar array switched on
The Sekdoom project has a total capacity of 14.5MW and is expected to generate enough electricity to power almost 4000 households
A floating solar farm claimed to be the biggest in the Netherlands has been switched on.
The Sekdoom project, located near the city of Zwolle, has a total capacity of 14.5MW and is expected to generate enough electricity to power almost 4000 households.
Germany s BayWa said the installation of 40000 solar panels, done in partnership with Dutch firm GroenLeven, took only six weeks.
The project is the former company s third floating solar array â€“ the 2MP Weperpolder project and the 8.4MW Tynaarlo plant.
Dr. Benedikt Ortmann, Global Head of Solar Projects said: In only a few months we built 25MW of floating PV projects in the Netherlands, which made us one of the biggest floating solar developers in Europe.
â€œThose installations are an important extension to ground-mounted facilities and a smart contribution to improve the so called â€˜double functionâ€™ applications for solar, such as AgriSolar, Carports, building integrated PV and rooftop PV. We are planning to add more than 100MW of floating PV next year just in Europe.â€
