=> Bihar Renewable Energy Development Agency (BREDA) is set to commission the state’s first two MW floating solar power plant in Darbhanga.
About the project:
=> The government has taken this initiative on an experimental basis.
=> The Darbhanga power station plant is going to be the first-of-a-kind in Bihar which is being built over a pond.
=> The plant consists of 4,004 solar modules. Each module is installed in the pond and is capable of generating 505-megawatt peak (MWp) electricity.
=> It will generate 2.7 million units annually and will help in reducing 64,125 tonnes of CO2 in its lifecycle of 25 years,
=> The floating power plant will help meet two goals: Produce green energy from solar panels and promote fish farming.
What is Floating solar photovoltaic (FPV)?
=> The floating solar photovoltaic (FPV) system is an emerging technology in which a solar photovoltaic (PV) system is placed directly on top of a body of water, as opposed to on land or on building rooftops.
=> These installations open up new opportunities for scaling up solar generating capacity, especially in countries with high population density and competing uses for available land.
=> The technology is particularly promising for fast-growing Asian economies. Interest is growing rapidly in the region, and large plants are being installed or planned in China, India and Southeast Asia.
=> The world’s first floating solar plant was built in Japan, in Aichi Prefecture in central Honshu.
=> Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned India’s largest Floating Solar PV plant.
=> Water surface conditions are much rougher (larger waves and higher winds)
=> Mooring and anchoring become even more critical amid large tidal movements and currents.
=> Salinity tests the durability of components
=> The accumulation of marine organisms on equipment (“biofouling”) can interfere with functionality.
=> The harsher near-shore environment imposes stringent requirements on floats, anchors, moorings, and components.
=> Despite these challenges, floating solar offers significant opportunities for the global expansion of solar energy capacity.
