• Hanwha Q Cells has been contracted by K-Power in South Korea to build a 41 MW floating solar facility
  • It will come up at a multipurpose dam in Hapcheon region and will have construction starting before the year ends
  • Hanwha will deploy its own Q-Peak Duo Poseidon modules for the project which it says are specifically for floating PV domain

South Korean solar power company Hanwha Q Cells will develop a 41 MW floating solar power plant in its home country and plans to start construction on the project before the end of the year. Local media referring to the company statement said on completion it will be the largest floating solar power plant built at a dam.

The facility will be located on a multipurpose dam in Hapcheon region, under contract with state water resource development and management agency K-Water. For this project, Hanwha said it will deploy its floating solar special Q-Peak Duo Poseidon modules and claims for these modules to have power output of 420 W and energy efficiency of 20.3%.

South Korea is already working on a massive 2.1 GW floating solar PV plant for Saemangeum Lake approved by the country’s Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy in July 2019 (see South Korea Announces 2.1 GW Floating Solar Project).
