Hydrelio: Floating Solar System

SIMPLE, DURABLE AND AFFORDABLE FLOATING SOLAR PV PLATFORMS

Our innovative floating solar platform Hydrelio© allows standard PV panels to be installed on large bodies of water such as drinking water reservoirs, quarry lakes, irrigation canals or remediation and tailing ponds.

A simple and affordable alternative to ground-mount solar systems, Hydrelio© is particularly suitable for energy and water-intensive industries who cannot afford to waste either land or water. Wineries, dairy farms, fish farms, mining companies, wastewater treatment plants, irrigation districts and water agencies are all examples of organisations who benefit from the synergy that our system creates between sun and water.

The Hydrelio© technology has been put to the test and has a 20+ year lifetime. Since February 2011, we have been operating a pilot project in the south of France to come up with a simple and efficient design that is both affordable and high performing.
