TMK Hydroenergy Power, a part of CEZ Romania, together with Innovation Norway, has started the construction of the first floating solar power plant in Romania, with the capacity of 1 MW. Solar power plant will generate more than 1 GWh of electricity per year and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by over 300 tons of CO2 annually.
The value of the investment is 1.36 million euros, with TMK Hydroenergy Power benefiting from an Innovation Norway grant to cover part of the expenses. The project aims to dispose of the currently unused water body of the Grebla lake, with an area of approximately 30,000 square meters.
The energy produced will partially cover the internal electricity consumption of TMK Hydroenergy Power. So far, the solar panels have been delivered, together with the floats and their related equipment, and the preliminary stages for the start of the installation work of the solar panels have been carried out.
