December 22 (Renewables Now) - Astronergy/Chint Solar, a specialised subsidiary of the Chint Group, has connected to the Chinese grid a facility that combines a 550-MWp floating solar power plant with aquaculture.

The Wenzhou Taihan project was built on tidal land and now represents the biggest “large-scale single-unit aquaculture-PV complementary solar plant” in the country.

The facility utilises 1.396 million units of Chint Astro mono-Si photovoltaic (PV) modules, each of 450 Wp. They cover an area of about 4.7 sq km (1.8 sq miles) and, together, can generate a total of 650 million kWh of electricity per year.

Astronergy/Chint Solar serves not only as the supplier of electrical transmission and distribution equipment, but also as the operation and maintenance (O&M) service provider.
