CIEL & TERRE has an outstanding track record of floating solar platforms deployed all over the world with over 135 projects installed.
To further advance the development of floating solar technology, CIEL & TERRE, a leading expert in the floating solar technology, has joined hands with PRINCIPIA which has a strong technical background in the offshore renewable energy industry.
CIEL & TERRE has an outstanding track record of floating solar platforms deployed all over the world with over 135 projects installed; PRINCIPIA is a leader on engineering and design of floating foundations for PV and Wind Offshore industry. The two companies will further develop Ciel & Terre’s leading floating solar platform systems.
“PRINCIPIA’s support will contribute into accelerating the development of this specific product by putting together 30 years’ experience in mooring system, floating offshore structure and cable design, in addition to a strong knowledge of coupled hydro-aero mechanical system and associated modelling and design challenges,” the company press release said.
Benoit Chassé, Business Development and Project Manager for PRINCIPIA said, “Floating solar market is about to become huge in the years to come, this is a really exciting time for Ciel & Terre. I am looking forward to supporting CIEL & TERRE floating platform development and be ready for giant floating projects to come.”
Speaking about the two companies’ joint perspective, Olivier Philippart, Project & Engineering Director for CIEL & TERRE, said, “Floating Solar projects are becoming more and more challenging in terms of size but also in terms of environmental conditions.”
Further adding that, “We see huge projects materializing on hydro-dams and coastal areas where combined efforts of wind and waves will be comparable to those experienced offshore. Partnering with PRINCIPIA is for us the opportunity to benefit from their experience in designing cost-effective solutions in such environments”.
