Sustainable things to copy: Concepts and skills around the globe
Floating solar parks are conquering more and more lakes and seas around the globe.
One of the world's largest is currently being built in Singapore. The 60-megawatt park has 122,000 solar collectors and is to operate the entire water treatment system of the island state in the future. AI assistance is included, as drones will be used to maintain the 45-hectare site.
RWE has also been swimming since August: The energy supply company is currently installing 13,400 solar modules on a lake in the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant. With a total output of 6.1 MW, they are to be connected to the grid as early as the end of 2021.
There are only a few small floatovoltaics in Germany so far. China has the world's largest floating solar parks. They reach maximum outputs of more than 100 MW.
