Hanwha Q CELLS supplying 1.85MW of modules to the Netherlands’ largest floating solar plant

‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Hanwha Q CELLS said it would be supplying over 6,100 ‘Q.PEAK-G4.1’ 300Wp monocrystalline solar modules to a floating solar (FPV) plant in the Netherlands in 2018. Image: Tenten Solar Zonnepanelen B.V.

‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Hanwha Q CELLS said it would be supplying over 6,100 ‘Q.PEAK-G4.1’ 300Wp monocrystalline solar modules to a floating solar (FPV) plant in the Netherlands in 2018.

The SMSL noted that the FPV being developed by Tenten Solar Zonnepanelen B.V. on a freshwater reservoir in Lingewaard in central Netherlands would be constructed between April and June 2018 for Drijvend Zonnepark Lingewaard B.V., and be the largest of its kind so far built in the country.

The FPV plant would also be equipped with FPV specialist Ciel et Terre’s modular pontoon system and PV inverters and optimizers from SolarEdge.

Frans van Herwijnen MSc, Director of Drijvend Zonnepark Lingewaard B.V. said: “We are 100% convinced that our floating PV system will only be the starting point for many more successful floating solar projects in the Netherlands. Since our inland waterways have a surface of about 7.650 square kilometers, floating systems can have an important contribution in terms of increasing the renewable energy supply in the Netherlands.”

Maengyoon Kim, EU Sales Head at Hanwha Q CELLS added, “Benelux is one of Q CELLS´ key regions in 2018. We aim to become the market leading module supplier in the Netherlands and in Belgium this year.”

The FPV is expected to produce around 1.757,5 MWh of clean electricity per year and feed it into the public grid and comes under the SDE+ scheme of governmental subsidies in the Netherlands.
