Philippines Switches On its First Floating Solar Power Project

The Philippines first 200-kW floating solar power project by Ocean Sun was recently switched on. The joint project is part of a partnership between Ocean Sun and GCL-SI.

As new opportunity-creating technology, floating solar facilities — the installation of photovoltaic (PV) panels on a body of water — are advantageous for countries where land is in high demand. Alfonso Cusi, secretary for the Department of Energy of the Philippines, noted that the potential of floating solar would provide a much-needed boost to the energy supply as the country demand for power reaches 11,000 MW.

Through an agreement between Ocean Sun and GCL-SI at Shanghai SNEC, the two companies cooperated on the development of PV modules for floating PV solutions and floating solar facilities. GCL-SI will further strengthen its research and development into high-efficiency products, supporting Ocean Sun for the construction of solar energy facilities to match the rapid economic growth and ever-increasing demand for renewable energy in the Philippines.
