Hanwha wins contract for floating Dutch solar plant

Apr 11,2018
Hanwha Q Cells won a contract to supply solar modules to build the Netherlands’ largest floating solar array on a water reservoir.

The company announced on Tuesday that it inked a deal with local solar developer Tenten Solar Zonnepanelen, which is developing the Lingewaard Floating Solar Park. The value of the deal was not disclosed.

The plant will be made up of roughly 6,100 solar modules spread over a water surface area of around 15,800 square meters (170,070 square feet), according to Hanwha. When completed, the photovoltaic system will generate roughly 1,800 megawatt-hours of clean electricity, enough to power 380 four-person households.
