LOC Group Wins TRUST-PV R&D Project with a Specific Focus on Floating Solar

22 Jul 2020

INNOSEA, the independent engineering firm specializing in Offshore Renewable Energy, an LOC Group company, is pleased to announce it has been awarded a European H2020 grant to undertake a research and development project to support more efficient and cost-effective design of floating solar PV plants.

The project is led by EURAC European Academy of Bolzano in Italy.

The R&D project aims to develop accurate numerical and cost models for the development of PV plants. INNOSEA's focus will be on the comparative performance and reliability of floating versus ground mounted solar PV, the numerical modelling of floating solar farm behaviour and the Operations & Maintenance drivers, along with guidelines, for future revamping and repowering.

Work on the project will start in September 2020 and is anticipated to take approximately 4 years to complete.

The project will be resourced by Innosea, with support from LOC's wider renewable energy-focussed teams around the world. This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 952957.
