A floating solar project in the Tokyo Bay area will be developed by Tokyu Land and the offshore PV specialist SolarDuck of the Netherlands.

floating solar Tokyu Land, a Japanese real estate company has been given a contract by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government to build an offshore floating photovoltaic pilot project in the Tokyo Bay Area. Tokyu Land said in a statement that it will work with SolarDuck, a Dutch offshore PV specialist, and Everblue Technologies, a Tokyo-based company, to build the project.

After completing consultations with the Bureau of Policy Planning of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, it stated that it would provide additional project details. In the future, the three businesses hope to bring the floating solution into commercial use all over Japan.

The first demonstrator project featuring SolarDuck’s floating structure technology for offshore solar projects in estuaries, natural harbors, and near-shore locations was unveiled in 2021. It installed the 64 kW system at an inshore location near IJzendoorn, Gelderland, Netherlands, on the Waal (Rhine) River.

SolarDuck recently agreed to collaborate with the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN), and Deltares to develop a pilot project in the North Sea. The Dutch government has provided the consortium with funding totaling €7.8 million.

Triangular structures measuring 16 meters by 16 meters by 16 meters make up the fundamental floating platforms. They are similar to floating oil platforms or offshore wind platforms. They can be connected in a variety of ways to make large plants. World news Spot Live
