Romania turns on first floating PV plant

Share

Romanian energy company TMK Hydroenergy Power – part of the Evryo Group, a subsidiary of Czech power utility CEZ – has launched Romania's first large-scale floating PV system in collaboration with Innovation Norway.

The 1 MW system is located in Caras Severin county, next to the 22 MW Grebla hydroelectric plant, which is owned and operated by CEZ. The floating PV project will generate power for the internal consumption of the hydroelectric plant.

“It is a pilot project that we believe will demonstrate its effectiveness and we want to replicate,” said Liviu Gavrila, general director of Generation at Evryo.
