SUNfarming develops and builds the first floating solar plant in Hückelhoven

SUNfarming develops and builds the first floating solar plant on a gravel lake in Hückelhoven/Rhineland. From now on, the Laprell Kaphof gravel works will supply itself with CO2-neutral, green electricity from its own gravel lake.

After a year of development and pilot phase for SUNfarming's first self-developed floating PV system, which is now being realised, the total of 143 pontoons of the 750 kWp solar system are currently being mounted on the large gravel lake of KLK Kieswerke Laprell Kaphof. Beforehand, concrete foundations for the anchoring of the floating PV system had already been brought to the bottom of the lake at a depth of about 10 metres. A total of 1,716 bifacial glass-glass modules, 4 inverters and 1 transformer will supply the gravel plant, which continues to produce at the Sand site, with its own electricity and thus contribute significantly to the customer's energy cost reduction and CO2 neutrality. A total of 16 fitters and 2 site managers will set up the system on site in about 10 weeks, and the grid connection is scheduled to take place in April.
