Flexible Floating Solar System Design

12 May 2021 by Zimmermann PV-Floating

The solar energy sector is developing at a rapid pace as manufacturers introduce new modules and formats. These rapid development cycles are bringing real competition in module performance, therefore, developing a substructure for installation and the handling of new and different modules is becoming more and more challenging.

To accommodate the latest developments in the Floating Solar industry, Zimmermann PV-Floating has developed an integrated floating PV sub-structure that offers both flexibility and scalability.

This white paper outlines some of the main challenges in floating solar PV system design. As well as various ways in which these challenges and considerations have been accounted for in the design of the ‘ZIM Float’ solution developed by Zimmerman PV-Floating.

Due to the adaptability of the solution, this white paper hopes to provide answers and insights to a broad scope of questions related to floating solar PV system design, faced by the floating solar community.

During the third edition of the Floating Solar Conference, which will take place on 28 September 2021, in Amsterdam, we will be joined by Zimmerman PV-Floating and other leading industry experts. Together, speakers and panelists will detail the progress and latest developments in this fast-growing and highly innovative solar PV segment.
