“ The area is considered one of the most challenging for FPV due to the twice-a-day tidal changes in seawater environment with occasional typhoons, all of which have been taken into account in the FPV project design,” the statement read.

The 2020 Changbin floating solar project could generate around 260 gigawatt hours of electricity and meet the power needs of around 65,000 households, whilst reducing 138,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.
