Floating Solar PV

Robust solutions to viably harness the sun’s energy on the water surface

Floating Solar Pioneers with 700MW Gloabally Floating solar promises to bring utility-scale solar to water bodies.SgurrEnergy is pioneering commercially viable floating solar by solving the engineering challenges that limit floating solar today.
SgurrEnergy has provided solutions to Floating Solar Photo Voltaic (FSPV/FPV) projects globally with a specialized team dedicated for delivering FPV projects.

Floating solar plants demand special solar design engineering skills for designs that can withstand, water level variations, constant friction in moving parts, corrosion due to humidity and extreme weather situations with high wind and waves. Anchoring and underwater cables need to be perfectly designed to perform for 25 years in harsh operating environments. These risks get amplified for floating solar plants in the sea.

Our team understands water types, hydrodynamic loads, materials and floating structures. We tap into historical data to calculate precise requirements for floating solar PVs in any water body. A global presence helps us verify the quality of materials and manufacturing processes for floating solar equipment in the field.

The SgurrEnergy Solar Consulting

Advantage

We have perfected our best practices for technical reviews of floaters and their manufacturers over 700MW+ quality assessments, and incorporate IEC/ ASTM international standards .

We have built proprietary data models to interpret meteorological data and assess the flood risk for locations across the planet and an innovative playbook for flood risk mitigation.

Our proven capability in correctly assessing drag force with our customized CFD tools helps us select the best mooring cables.

Technical review of anchoring system. Hydrodynamic analysis for estimating wave height using different statistical formula to ensure the stability in the system and avoid any catastrophic failure.

We have built proprietary data models (CFD) to interpret wind tunnel test results and the chemical content of air and water at every site.

(years/projects) of experience in FEA powers our stress analysis of a spreader beam facing the worst anticipated load, aided by accurate estimates of water level variation.
