Ocean Sun – Floating Solar Power with PVC membrane can withstand typhoons

Protan_Floating-Solar-PowerFloating solar power creates almost limitless opportunities on the reservoirs of hydro-electric dams, complementing each other (solar when it is hot, hydro when it is wet). Ocean Sun introduces a novel, efficient, cost-effective and durable solution with patented technology composed of modified photovoltaic solar modules deployed on a floating PVC membrane. The tested Ocean Sun systems offer a good resistance against wind, currents and waves. An analysis has shown that it can even withstand typhoons of the category four. The construction is designed for climate conditions close to the Earth’s equator.
