Since the design of the floater has been thought for industrialisation, mass production of farms of few square kilometres will enable offshore solar energy to be ranked amongst the cheapest on the market. Moreover, the floater has been designed to make installation, retrieval and maintenance as simple as possible.
Adaptable and scalable
In order to ease the transport, the installation and the maintenance of the farm, the floating units have been thought to be modular and interchangeable. Thus, any unit can be retrieved and replaced to minimise production loss.
Heliotrope and efficient
Thanks to an optimised inclination of the solar panels and to a sun-tracking system, energy production is increased by 30% while the production costs and the footprints of the farm are decreased by 30%. As well, the efficiency of the solar panels is increased by 10% due to natural cooling induced by the proximity to seawater and the wind.
By capturing only 20% of the total solar irradiation available over the surface they occupy, the solar units can cohabitate with their neighbouring marin environment in perfect harmony
Solar energy is steering away from land
Launched in 2019, SolarinBlue are planning to test a first prototype in 2020 while carrying out preliminary studies for a first industrial farm to be installed in 2021.
