Floating solar installed in the Port of Oostende
A new floating solar power plant has been set up in the Port of Oostende in Belgium.
Greenpipe, with great support from project partner HelioRec, is proud to announce the successful installation of the floating solar plant. The 10kWp floating solar plant was installed on the 14th of January 2022 in the Port Oostende under the DUAL Ports EU program.
Greenpipe is the project partner to Dual Ports with Heliorec as subcontractor for the installation and analysis.
Undertaking the project during the current challenging time has become successful thanks to the great support from all parties. It engaged 10 companies from 7 countries.
The 10kWp (130 m2) floating solar project was built as a key part of the DUAL Ports EU-funded initiative. The system is designed for 44 m/s wind speed and 2 m waves. It already produces 50kWh of clean energy to a nearby workshop.
