The first floating wind-solar test

China's state-owned utility State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC) has launched the world's first commercial offshore floating solar powered in conjunction with an offshore wind turbine.

Electrek he says:

SPIC is one of the five major electricity supply companies in China and the world's largest photovoltaic company.

The tests are taking place off the coast of Haiyang, a city in Shandong, eastern China.

The project uses the patented floating solar energy technology of Norway-based Ocean Sun.

The two solar floats (see photo above) have a peak power of 0,5 megawatts. They are connected to a transformer on a wind turbine owned by SPIC, and then an undersea cable runs from the wind turbine to the power grid.

If the tests are completed successfully, the plan is to build a 20 MW floating wind-solar farm in 2023 using Ocean Sun's technology. The Best Technology Site in Greece
