World’s largest hydro-floating solar farm begins lighting up Thailand
The $34m solar farm is as big as 70 soccer fields combined.
The world’s largest hydro-floating solar farm, with a capacity of 2.7 gigawatts, has started operations in Thailand, 31 October.
The $34m solar farm is as big as 70 soccer fields combined. It is located at Sirindhorn reservoir, 660 kilometres east of Bangkok.
Bloomberg said the facility will generate power during the day and night.
In the morning, its 145,000 solar panels will generate power from the sun, and whilst three turbines will produce energy from flowing water at night.
The hydro-floating solar farm is the first of Thailand’s 16 projects in its key reservoirs.
