February 11 (Renewables Now) - BayWa re renewable energy GmbH said today it is building the 27.4-MWp Bomhofsplas floating solar farm on a sandpit lake in Zwolle, the Netherlands.

The renewables unit of German diversified group BayWa AG (ETR:BYW6) expects to complete the 73,000-module project in under eight weeks.

The company further noted that the entire construction of the Bomhofsplas solar farm is being done almost completely carbon free.

Benedikt Ortmann, global director of solar projects at BayWa re, said that the company has delivered more than 25 MWp of floating solar projects in Europe in the past year. He added that when it comes to the Bomhofsplas scheme, the developer has concluded 8 MW in only two weeks, thus peaking at building 1 MW a day.

BayWa re has already built the 14.5-MWp Sekdoorn, the 8.4-MWp Tynaarlo and the 2.1-MWp Weperpolder floating solar arrays.
