ANCHORING & MOORING SYSTEM
The anchoring and mooring system is one of the most important parts of a floating solar PV power plant. The anchoring system holds the system floating system in its position and resists environmental forces like wind, wave, and current.
The process of designing and installing an anchoring system requires advanced engineering knowledge and experience.
HydroSolar provides a one-stop anchoring and mooring solution including:
The Steps for a Reliable Anchoring and Mooring System
HydroSolar engineers support our clients to collect
the inputs essential for the design of a reliable anchoring system.
Maximum Wind Speed
Water Level Variation Profile
Bathymetry map of reservoir bottom
Topographical map of reservoir surrounding area
Reservoir bed soil conditions
2.CALCULATING ENVIRONMENTAL LOADS
Calculates the wind, wave, and current loads acting on the floating platform. In HydroSolar we base our anchoring system design on dynamic force calculations which are more complex to run but allow the dynamic nature of the water environment to modeled taking into account energy absorption, dynamic loading, and maximum stress reached by momentum which provides a more accurate depiction of the true forces acting on the floating solar platform.
3.ANCHORING & MOORING SYSTEM DESIGN
The optimal anchoring system is selected from
various combinations of anchor location:
and anchor type
Helical Screw Anchor
A hybrid combination of
Elastic rubber mooring lines and regular static lines are
designed for a safe and economically optimized mooring system.
HydroSolar team installs the anchoring and mooring system to ensure the solution is installed according to the highest standards thus providing a guaranteed solution.
