A 10GW consultation exclusively for floating PV has been issued by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) and it is conceivable that no such plans would be on the cards had it not been for the completion of a humbly sized but strategically significant project in the southern state of Kerala.
JSW Energy, and its subsidiary JSW Solar, are carrying out engineering works on a 4MW pilot floating solar project, with a view to setting up 250MW of similar projects in the future. Discom Mahagenco is also targeting 250MW of floating PV developments.
Indonesian power company PT Pembangkitan Jawa-Bali (PT PJB), a subsidiary of state utility PLN, and the UAE's Masdar have signed an agreement to develop the world’s largest floating solar project with a capacity of 200MW in Indonesia.
France-based floating PV specialist Ciel & Terre is expecting to launch a floating solar equipment manufacturing facility in Thailand next March and is in the final stages of approving a Vietnam facility.
