SolarDuck to build offshore solar at Kust West VII
- The 5MW demonstrator project is because of come online in 2026
SolarDuck has been awarded the globe ´ s largest hybrid offshore floating solar energy plant at the offshore wind park Hollandse Kust West VII (Netherlands).
The firm will develop a 5MW demonstrator with cutting-edge incorporated energy storage space services with the project because of end up being operational in 2026.
Supplying this project will enable SolarDuck to scale faster, gain the connected price benefits as well as ultimately accelerate commercial projects at grid scale.
Hybrid offshore wind and OFS projects promise to accelerate the adoption of OFS at scale. The complementarities between wind and solar resources as well as making better use of existing framework and the ocean space will drive the development of hybrid OFS projects.
By doing this, SolarDuck can have a much deeper impact in decarbonising the world, particularly in sunny regions of the globe where land is scarce.
SolarDuck chief executive officer Koen Burgers stated: "This is a flagship project for SolarDuck as well as a crucial turning point for the larger OFS industry. SolarDuck, being the very first to build a hybrid project at this scale, will show the robustness of our remedy, verify the vital role of system integration in building future-fit energy systems, as well as enable the scaling of the technology to increase its adoption."
