Simulate marine operation of floating solar farms

The global floating solar panels market demand was 615.2 MW in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.9% from 2020 to 2027. Increasing focus towards clean fuel power generation energy sources, coupled with technology advancement in solar panel components are expected to boost the market growth during this period. Floating solar farms gained traction particularly in countries with high population density and with competing uses for limited available land. These also operate at high efficiency since installing the solar panels on water helps cool the equipment.

The growing demand for floating solar PV farms is inevitable and Bentley’s MOSES software is the right solution for design and analysis of the highly specialized facilities.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The analysis of Floating Solar Photovoltaic structures (FSPV)
  • Introduction to Floating Solar Photovoltaic Structures (FSPV)
  • Technical Challenges
  • The Analysis with MOSES
  • FSPV Projects
