Other activities

In addition to floating solar activities, we extended our field of expertise to Agri-PV and Aquafarming. We cultivate our wish to develop respectful yet consistent structures that will allow a practical distribution of renewable energies.

Agri PV

We identify the best approach to optimize the use of agricultural land without sacrificing existing farming activities. This balance sustains both activities, for example PV systems can be adapted and used as sprinklers on nearby fields. 

Our track record

  • 2 projects under development
  • 150MW by 2025

Agri PV benefits:

  • Optimize land usage
  • Decrease land cost for farmers
  • Racking system can also be used for agricultural activities like integrated for sprinklers
  • Provide shade for crops exposed to extreme heat

Aquafarming PV

We offer solutions to combine fish farming activities and solar projects. Depending on your existing aqua culture type, we provide the most adequate solution to integrate both activities: pile mounted structures and rooftop PV plants.

Our track record

  • 3MW under construction
  • 5 projects ongoing
  • 200MW by 2025

Aquafarming PV benefits:

  • Optimize land usage
  • Decrease land cost for fish farmer
  • Multiple type of powerplant combination options
  • Stabilize the water temperature
  • Resist strong wind for the aqua culture

What do we offer ?

Financial

  • Long-term lease agreement or land acquisition

Technical

  • A unique expertise facilitating procedures and permits approvals for a quick project completion

Dev & IPP

For developer and IPPs who are interested in this type of powerplants, in addition to bringing the solar solution, we can also: 

  • give you options for the approaches to collaborate with the fisherman to ensure the project to move on smoothly
  • suggest the suitable layout for the farming activities while not compromising the investment of the powerplant.
