Engineers from Kyocera not only make highly secure smartphones. Their scope is much broader interests. For example, a “clean” energy. Let’s look at a new project close.

Impressive, however, the other – an unusual approach. Earth in Japan is small, so the solar power station built right on the water. Let’s look at the main features of the solar power station.

Features of solar power station

Japan launched a floating solar power station

One such company opened in Hyogo Prefecture. It is the largest swimming complex in the world. It can annually produce 2.3 MW.

Created in collaboration with other corporations – Century Tokyo Leasing. The key point is a system does not exist for the sake of beauty. Its objective practical – to serve the next household.

Electricity for households will buy a regional provider of Kansai Electric Power.

It is noteworthy that the above – only part of an ambitious plan. By the end of this year, Kyocera will build a set of similar facilities throughout Japan. Their combined capacity will be approximately 60 MW.

    Floating Solar Power Systems are wonderful Ideas. And it’s very important to maintain effectively same direction and position on the water for floating solar plants. Because directional change of solar panels reduces electricity production. So floating solar plants also need the directional control mooring systems for their parked positions. Azimuth and position change of floating solar plants caused by wind, waves and external forces. Restoring Force Strengthened Mooring System for floating solar plants has been created in South Korea. This Mooring System generates Restoring Force immediately when floating solar plants are being rotated or moved on the water.

    In addition, you have to reduce vibration to install floating solar plants. Because, it can make micro-cracks to floating solar panels and the durability problem of floating solar plants. The risk of power loss in PV modules due to micro cracks is increasing. Vibrations caused by wind, waves and external forces. New Type Floating Body Stabilizer has been created in South Korea. The Floating Body Stabilizers generate drag force immediately when floating solar plants are being rolled, pitched and yawed on the water. Recently, Restoring Force Strengthened Mooring Systems and Floating Body Stabilizers have been used for floating solar plants in South Korea. You can see them in Ochang Dam, South Korea. I N I WORLD
