Floating solar park Zaltbommel

On the 5th of December, 2022, Solinoor and Stichting Future Energy Zaltbommel signed the contract for the floating solar park Zaltbommel on a water retention pond. The construction was initiated at the end of Q2 2023 and the floating solar park was operational and commissioned at the  beginning of October 2023. In total 4.683 solar panels were installed with a total capacity of 2,6 MWp. The produced energy will be used to power the business park. By using the water area of the retention pond in this industrialised zone, additional renewable energy can be generated to make the business park more sustainable.

Start construction of floating solar park Zaltbommel with the transformer station placement

June 2, 2023 - Placing transformer station

Over the previous months, the team has worked hard to finalise the preparations for the construction of the floating solar park. Now that the construction of the solar park has been initiated, we can now celebrate our first major milestone with the transformer station being installed.

July 10, 2023 - Anchoring

In preparation for the floating solar island to be placed, the anchoring works have been done. By placing over 90 concrete blocks, a robust foundation has been laid out to keep the floating solar park in place in all weather conditions.

August 14, 2023 - Start floating platform

The construction of the floating solar platform has been started whereby the floaters, PV panels, and DC cables are assembled. After the assembly of the arrays, the block which is then moved into the water and anchored in place.

August 23, 2023 - Platform placement

The assembled blocks of the floating solar platform are moved to its designed locations. Once at its location, the blocks are anchored in place and connected together to form one solid platform.

September 8, 2023 - Platform complete

The floating solar platform is now fully built and anchored in place. The final steps are connecting the last few cables with the inverters and transformer station, removal of the construction site-setup, and finalising the details of the complete system.

October 5, 2023 - Floating solar park operational

Since the beginning of October 2023, the floating solar park is fully operational and producing renewable energy. In roughly 4 months, the entire construction of this project has been completed.
