Europe's Largest Floating Solar Power Plant in Netherlands
Jul 03, 2019
Gronelleven, a Dutch renewable energy developer, is planning to build the largest floating solar photovoltaic power plant in Europe, which will be located in an abandoned sand quarry owned by Kremer Zand and Grind with a capacity of 48MW. The floating solar photovoltaic panels will be built on its extraction ponds and other inland waterways.
In order to make room for the station, Kremer Zand and Grind will soon transfer the sand quarry and its drying equipment to other industrial areas. The company will also enjoy a certain amount of the electricity generated by this PV station, with the spare electricity to be sold locally. But Kremer Zand and Grind has not announced the details of the power purchase agreement in the notice.
Dutch Foundation for Applied Water Research (STOWA) are recently providing advice for companies that are interested in developing floating solar PV projects in the Netherlands, including a series of guidelines and relevant tools. Rijkswaterstaat (English: The Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management) plans to install floating solar photovoltaic equipment in its workplace. And in 2017, it planed to develop the project on the IJsselmeer (English: Lake Ijssel), a shallow artificial lake covering an area of 1,100 km² in the central Netherlands. (Editor: Claire Jeawin)
