Chinese Floating PV Reached The Second Development Peak - (1)

From Huainan-Huaibei area to the south of the Yangtze River - Chinese photovoltaic on water surface reached the second development peak.

According to the portal website of the people's Government of Hunan Province, after nearly five months of debugging and defect elimination, the first floating photovoltaic power station in Hunan Province, and also the longest floating power station in the world at present, the 100MW floating power station in Changhe, Beigang, Yiyang, Hunan, has steadily improved its performance and reached the design value of its power generation capacity. In addition, there are other floating pv power stations opearated stablely such as the 20MW floating power station in Yueyang, Hunan province, 17MW in Gao'an, Jiangxi province, 24MW in Guigang, Guangxi province, etc. With the stable operation of these floating power stations, the floating photovoltaic system on water surface has reached in the second development peak in China.

Huaihe River district become the leader of China's floating pv power station on water surface. The first appearance of floating pv power station on water surface in the world is controversial and we do not know the origin. According to a report by the Singapore Solar Energy Research Institute (seris), from 2013, Japan, South Korea and other countries with short land resources turned their attention to the water surface and tried to build small floating power stations on some irrigation reservoirs. It was not until 2016 that large-scale floating pv power station on water surfaces (above 10MW) appeared in China, that is, Panji 20 + 20MW floating project constructed by sunshine power in Huainan, Anhui Province.

In the photovoltaic leading demonstration bases in mining subsidence areas in Anhui province and Shandong province, floating power stations have emerged as new technology application demonstration projects, and a number of large-scale floating power station projects with representative significance have emerged, such as Guqiao 150MW floating power station projectin Huainan province, Xinji 102MW floating power station project in Huainan, Weishan Guoyang 50MW floating power station project in Jining, etc., which will generate floating electricity. The installed capacity of the station has been increased to more than 100MW. Until now, Guqiao power station has maintained the world record of the largest floating power station. What's more, these projects not only bring clean electricity, but also provide a new direction for the comprehensive treatment of coal mining subsidence area and the transformation of urban energy. The low use value collapse lake formed by coal mining has become a floating photovoltaic power station, and the "Scar" in the subsidence area has become a shining beauty.
