A Chinese energy giant Sungrow which makes photovoltaic (PV) inverter systems has unveiled the world’s largest floating PV power plant. The plant capacity is astonishing 40-megawatt solar power plant, situated atop a flooded former coal-mining town in the Anhui province of eastern China. “The plant not only makes full use of this area, reducing the demand for lands – but also improves generation due to the cooling effects of the surface,” a local government official said.
The water has no other major value as it is mineralized which makes it valueless, notes Sungrow.
Sungrow is one of the world’s largest PV inverter system suppliers with over 31 gigawatts installed worldwide as of December 2016.
We need this type of solution in the lagoons of Lagos, Niger Delta and River Niger where we do not have uses for the water bodies.
