Emica Solar offers solar generation farms adapted to their customer’s needs installing over reservoir’s no used water surface solar energy generation systems offering a serious advantage over traditional photovoltaics solutions.
“Floating solar – the installation of solar photovoltaic panels floating on the surface of lakes, hydropower reservoirs, agriculture reservoirs, industrial ponds, and near-coastal areas – is one of the fastest-growing power generation technologies today. It opens new horizons to scale up of solar power globally, particularly in countries with land constraints.While up-front costs are slightly higher, the costs over time of floating solar are at par with traditional solar PV, because of floating solar’s higher energy yield due to the cooling effect of water”

SOLUTION PROVIDED BY EMICA SOLAR
WE GENERATE EVEN MORE
The increased in generation by decreasing module’s working temperature is optimized by air convection generated by the gap between the structure and water’s surface. In addition, bifacial panels can be installed reaching up to 40% more power generation.
OUR CONNECTION WITH WATER
Only a 7% of the surfaced covered by YFS floating structure is in contact with water, being in any case the materials used suitable for human consumption.
DESIGNED BY NAVAL ENGINEERS
Our design is based on naval design criteria to optimize the integration of the structure with the aquatic environment and calculated and designed to withstand winds of 29m / s and waves of 1 meter high.
TILT ANGLE FLEXIBILITY
Tilt panel can be adapted to the needs of the project and location, as well as the single or double orientation.
INTEGRATION IN THE ENVIRONMENT AS A PRIORITY
Integration into the biodiversity of the environment is a priority criterion in the design of the solution.
ADDITIONAL VALUE TO ITS OWN
Floating platform offers the possibility of other added functions such as water quality control.
O&M AS A DESIGN CRITERION
Reservoir’s sediments cleaning enable.Access to 100% of the solar modules and components of the system for a correct O&M.
