Floating PV is the first floating solar park in Flanders. LRM undertook the construction of the solar park together with a few partners at the De Schans quarry of SCR-Sibelco, in the Antwerp municipality of Dessel. The 7-hectare floating solar park has a peak capacity of 7 MW. Most of the energy produced goes to glass manufacturer Sibelco, while the other part is injected into the public electricity grid. Floating PV integrates several innovative techniques, such as active cooling and the use of double-sided panels with increased reflection. Furthermore, the water provides a cooling effect so that the efficiency of the panels is higher in the summer months.
