Practice recommendation

DNV-RP-0584

 

In a joint industrial project (JIP), the world's first practical recommendation for floating solar power plants was developed. The Recommended Practice (RP), which is the result of the participation of DNV and 24 industry participants (including Blue C GmbH), contains technical requirements and guidance for the development, reliable and sustainable design, operation and decommissioning of floating photovoltaic (FPV) projects. 

 

The Best Practice Guide was developed to ensure harmonized and high quality approaches in the development of floating solar energy projects. The focus here is on the assessment of the site condition, the energy yield forecast, anchoring systems, floating structures as well as permits and environmental impacts. The RP has been kept as technology neutral as possible to provide functional requirements and guidelines.

Floating photovoltaic projects

We have been involved in a number of realized projects of different scale. Our accomplishments here included:

• Determination of the directional wind    

   and wave loading for local conditions

• Simulation of the dynamic load effects and the     structural movements for anchoring variants         and anchor arrangements

• Modeling and evaluation of the FPV system         movements and shifts as well as the load             distribution in the anchors for high and low           water levels

• Dimensioning and design of the anchoring           components based on load effects and load       combinations according to valid standards
