Upsolar, Koine And CW Deploys A Floating PV System At Tengeh Reservoir In Singapore


Upsolar with Koine and local installation partner CW has deployed a floating PV system at Tengeh Reservoir in Singapore.

The floating PV system installed at Tengeh reservoir is a part of the joint project overseen by the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) and lead by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and PUB as part of Singapore’s green initiatives to assess the viability of using floating PV systems.

Upsolar is one of eight other companies selected to install its solar panels that will produce close to 100kW of electricity when connected to the national grid. Upsolar’s UP-M320P panels used in the system could allow 20 average households to completely run on green energy. The panels are mounted on a floating structure designed by Koine Multimedia, and the installation was conducted by CW Group in October 2016. According to a press statement SERIS will analyze the solar PV system, and PUB will study the effects on the surrounding water environment.

Upsolar is proud and excited to be part of a project that could open up new opportunities for floating PV,” said Roy Li, Managing Director of APAC Region at Upsolar Group. “The land constraints in Singapore is a huge challenge for solar photovoltaic installations, but we are confident that floating PV can be the solution and would be very happy to be involved in future projects.”
