Renewable Energy Solution for Dam Reservoirs and Lakes
Building on its expertise in developing the Ocean Hybrid Platform, SINN Power launched a Floating PV Solution for renewable electricity generation on calm waters – the Water Lily. The product introduction event was held recently in Gauting, near Munich in Germany, close to the company’s headquarters.
The freshwater floating solar platform also offers the benefit of small component size that can be segmented for transport. This reduction of components’ volume results in cost-optimized shipping in 20’ ISO containers, less needed storage space on-site and easier installation.
The components of the floating structure are made of aluminium alloys making it corrosion-resistant and nearly fully recyclable.
As SINN Power originally comes from development of offshore solutions, the Water Lily is optimized in terms of robustness, stability, durability and economy.
Due to scarcity of land, floating photovoltaic systems are a perfect renewable energy solution for hydropower dam reservoirs, mining and quarrying sedimentation tanks, aquaculture farms, industrial waste water and other bodies of water – there are endless application possibilities.
“There is a huge demand for renewable electricity due to the phase out of fossil fuels. Urgent action is needed to close this gap. The Water Lily will contribute to exploit the potential for electricity generation on calm waters. In doing so, SINN Power plans first projects in 2022,” argued Dr. Philipp Sinn, CEO of SINN Power.
