Floating Guqiao Huainan

Floating systems made at any scale

Sungrow has been dedicated to the renewable energy industry for more than 22 years. Facing the global demands of floating solar plants, Sungrow has established a specialized research and manufacturing base for floating solar plants.

The global leading provider of floating system solutions

The Sungrow Floating division uses a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) in the production process. The material we utilize in the flotation production is High-density polyethylene (HDPE) – a material we specifically developed and refined for flotation usage. Our floating solutions have several TÜV certifications and Sungrow owns more than 70 patents in the space.

Sungrow Floating also leads and participates in defining technical standards for floating solutions and provides customers with full service. Our product range includes advanced floating bodies, anchor systems, electric systems and the operation and maintenance of the power station.

Floating cold region

Made for the extreme

Sungrow Floating is an industry leader in floating solar PV plants worldwide. Our floating systems have been deployed in the coal subsidence areas in Anhui and Shandong, frequent typhoon areas in Taiwan, extremely cold areas in Heilongjiang and Japan, as well as in Thailand and Israel. The total installed capacity of Sungrow floating amounted to one-third of global market share at the end of 2018.

Full solution provider

Sungrow Floating provides large-scale floating PV plant solutions that can be deployed on water. We've developed many technologies and innovations, such as integrated device-boost inverters, offshore designs of boost inverters, lightning-shielding designs for overwater grounding systems, the electric damp-proof treatment, laying and fixing solutions of S-shaped curved flexible cables, and water level fluctuation adaptive anchor systems.

Sungrow's intelligent floating matrix monitoring system can automatically raise the alarm and supervise the operation status of boost inverter platforms and the whole floating matrix to ensure the whole system operates safely. 

Sungrow floating systems are available as a dual-glass panel version or as an aluminum frame version. Both versions are extremely reliable and easy to install. They are very durable, withstanding up to level 17 typhoons and heavy snow.

In combination with the possibility to adjust for different latitudes, floating systems by Sungrow can be set up and operated almost anywhere. The dual-glass panel version can be installed through guide rail and briquetting, thus preventing the deformation of the cantilever part of the panels.
Both the single-row array and the dual-row array are designed to achieve a low Levelized Cost Of Energy (LCOE). Their flexible design allows for good ventilation that helps to improve the effective power generation.

The single-row array features a good orientation consistency and various layouts that can adjust to different water regions. The dual-row array offers an improved Solar Irradiation (SI) and comes with a wide aisle for easy and quick operation and maintenance.
Sungrow’s customized anchoring system can be used for various scenarios with different water depth and water level variation. All Sungrow anchoring systems have been tested and certified for various wave and water flow conditions.

Our computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations take into account the water flow and even the wind force. All maximum tensions for mooring ropes and anchoring design types have been subjected to extensive testing under extreme conditions to ensure that your investment is safe.
