The Fishery Photovoltaic Project in Nandagang, Cangzhou province has been connected to grid. It is equipped with Vertex 670W and n-type Vertex690W modules. Trina Solar’s Vertex 600W+ ultra high-power modules are an excellent value for customers. They offer exceptional reliability and a low cost of ownership.
Cangzhou lies near the Bohai Sea coast, with Beijing and Tianjin in the north. It is also located in an area that has saline-alkali soils, and mudflats. The owner of the project decided to use 210 Vertex high-power modules in order to set up the project for local fisheries. The 130-hectare project is expected to produce power for 1,292 hours per year over 25 years, generate about 128,000 MWh of renewable power annually, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 107,000 tons.
The 210 Vertex modules have been the leader in low-LCOE in an era where grid parity is full. These modules are non-destructive and can be interconnected with high-density wires, as well as other technologies. The 210 Vertex modules are highly efficient, reliable, and powerful and can reduce the cost of utility project systems, increase efficiency, and guarantee project returns.
The combination of photovoltaic and fishery power generation allows for power generation in conjunction with fishing. After the project is connected to the grid, the project will be installed on fish ponds. These will still be used for shrimp and fish breeding. The floating photovoltaic panels can shade the fish tank, reduce the temperature and cut evaporation, and block strong sunlight. This reduces the chance of fish dying from high water temperatures. This project has great economic and environmental advantages.
Wood Mackenzie, a consulting firm in energy, predicts that the global floating solar demand will increase by 22 percent per year between 2019-2024. This gives more opportunities to use PV.
