Zim Float – Floating PV-System

  • Zim Float – a large scale floating PV-System
  • Integrated system design with fully certified electrical concept.
  • Integrated inverter boats, walk- and maintenance ways, cable  ducts, wave barrier and floating transformer station
  • High module occupancy rate results in low consumption.
  • Scalable system adaptable to project size and external conditions.
Zim Float-System

New product – German quality

  • High solid steel beams, with zinc,aluminum and magnesium coating for maximal corrosion prevention.
  • System based on high-density polyethylene floater, connected without mechanical attachment.
  • Modular east-west system, based on a solar boat concept with 12 x 72 cell (or 18 x 72 cell) modules.
  • High cooling effect of modules by air permeability, chimney effect and close range to the cooling water.
  • No heat accumulation underneath modules possible.
  • High light transmission by glass-glass modules possible.
  • Small footprints on water by floates ensure flowing water underneath installation which results in low impact to environment.
  • Prevention of algae formation and dirt accumulation.

Safe maintenance!

  • All modules and inverters are accessible via safe and stable maintenance gangways.
  • Gangways are following the strings, which simplifies maintenance and repair.
  • Railings inverter row available on request.
  • In final state all cables are protected from long term water contact and direct sunlight which ensures best conditions for cable strings and cable connectors.

Certified electrical cabling!

  • Neat and tidy cable routing by integrated cable ducts for DC and AC cabling.
  • Easy, fast and safe cabling on shore by prefabricated cable strings guarantee highest electrical safety and a long-lasting quality.
