Seaflex-moored FPV plant survives nature’s fury

One of the largest floating solar power plant in India has managed to survive the extreme conditions during this monsoon season’s heavy rains.

The Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) initially worried that the 0,5 MWp floating power plant, located in the Banasura Sagar dam in Wayanad, would risk being completely submerged due to massive waves following this season’s heavy rains in the area.

Due to seasonal floods, the project had been dimensioned to withstand up to 65 feet (20 meters) of water level variation – which was made possible by using Seaflex to moor the system – but following massive rain and subsequent flooding of the dam the installation experienced water levels around four feet (1,2 meters) above the design parameters.

Local experts responsible for installing the floating solar plant attributed the survival of the installation to “the innovative design and the sturdy anchoring system”.
