    Hanwha Q Cells is one of the largest solar panel manufacturers in the world. Hanhwa Q Cells has been involved in the installation of floating solar power plants in several countries. Its floating solar panel module “Q.PEAK DUO Poseidon” is made of environmentally friendly materials with improved moisture resistance and is ideal for hot, humid environments. The Q.PEAK DUO Poseidon is also highly resistant to salinity and tests have confirmed the best performance of solar panels in marine environments.
    Current development. Hanhwa Q Cells is responsible for the Hapcheon Dam Project (South Korea), Hanwha Q-Cells has been selected to install a 63MW floating solar system on Goheung Lake, South Korea’s Jeolla Province, and is expected to supply the energy demand of 90,000 household users per year after the project is completed. As Hanhwa Q Cells is attached to the floating solar power plant project at Hapcheon Dam in Korea, where the world’s largest floating solar power plant will be built, these projects will increase Hanhwa Q Cells’ cumulative Q.PEAK DUO Poseidon sales to the 100 MW mark.

    The most advanced floating solar technology

    Q-Cells floating solar station installation example

    In the Netherlands, in 2018, the largest floating solar power plant was installed in a water reservoir located in the Lingewaard area with a capacity of 1,830MW. In this project, 6,100 units of Hanwha Q Cells 300W solar panels (Q.PEAK) were installed on water, covering 15,800 m², to produce more than 1,800 MWh of electricity annually, enough to satisfy 400 households.
    Future trends of floating solar systems

    « The FPV (Floating solar systems) market grew to 2 GW of globally installed capacity in 2020. DNV foresees a total of 7 to 11 GW to be installed by 2025 with a major increase from 2023 onwards. » PV Magazine. – https://www.pv-magazine.com/2022/05/13/dnv-aims-to-achieve-fpv-specific-reference-standards-for-floating-solar-pv/

    Floating solar system

    For power generation on your water surface

    Floating solar systems offers an efficient and environmentally friendly solution to your energy needs. Our system is compatible with standard photovoltaic modules and it is also suitable for installations of any size. It allows you to fully take advantage of the potential of your unused water surfaces. The cooling provided by the water prevents the overheating of the system, thus you can benefit from optimal energy production.

    The Netherlands is also embracing floating solar technology. With inland waterways that have a total area of 7,650 km², it stands to reap a great benefit from floating solar technologies. In 2018, it installed a large floating solar power plant in a reservoir located in the area of Lingewaard. In this development, 6,100 units of a Hanwha Q Cells 300 W photovoltaic module (Q.PEAK) were installed on water spanning 15,800 m² to produce over 1,800 MW of electricity each year, which is enough to meet the energy needs of 400 -person households.


    Floating solar systems are compatible with projects located in very cold areas. Consider a “cold zone” when the project can face temperatures from 0°C to -40°C/F and a snow load exceeding 350N/m² (62 psf).
    To meet this site characteristics, use :
    a combination of laboratory testing (e.g. compliance with UL2730),
    field observation through projects installed in extremely cold regions.
    Accordingly, design floats to withstand cold, ice and snow. Depending on the characteristics of your site, we have the right float for your needs.
