Ocean Sun - High efficiency Solar floating system with high efficiency, low cost, enabling affordable clean energy
Solar energy is known as one of the most sustainable renewable energy source around the world
One of the limiting factors to deploy widely solar power plants is the lack of suitable land area. Floating solar is a relatively new technology. Ocean Suns has developed a novel solution to floating solar based on rigid solar modules mounted on hydro-elastic membranes. Designed for minimal use of materials, the solution is efficient at a lower cost. The lean floater design reduces wind drag and the hydro-elastic properties provide excellent seaworthiness. Extensive use of recyclable polymer materials reduces problems with corrosion and fatigue. Consequently, the Ocean Sun solution enables floating solar to a larger geographical area. It is not limited to rivers, lakes and reservoirs, but also nearshore and offshore deployment. The resulting cost of energy is lowered to an unprecedented level
