Profloating Sets Up ‘Milk Bottle’ Floating Solar System in Rotterdam
Profloating has completed the construction of the world’s first floating PV system in the form of a milk bottle in the port of Rotterdam.
An innovative Dutch company that specializes in floating solar energy solutions, realized the uniquely formed floating solar energy project in close collaboration with Floating Farm, a fully functional dairy farm on water in the city.
This makes the port of Rotterdam a scientific research location that is also accessible to interested parties. They can experience floating solar energy solutions themselves in practice.
The milk bottle project is the first working floating solar project that has been realized in a port with an open sea connection.
This is technically possible thanks to an advanced ebb-floor anchor system and floats that are also suitable for salt water. The system is Dutch engineered and will soon also be Dutch Made.
The showcase project at the Floating Farm location in Rotterdam puts Profloating in a position to show the world what innovative floating solar energy stands for.
This summer, Profloating and the Floating Farm will open their doors to the public. In September of this year, Profloating will also, together with Solar Plaza, organize the world’s first floating solar energy conference for the Floating Farm project.
