Chinese-based Sungrow FPV, the provider of floating solar solutions, has secured a contract for the supply of floating systems for the largest floating solar project in Indonesia to date.

The delivery of the systems for the 192MW Cirata floating solar project will begin in the first quarter of 2023, Sungrow FPV informed.

The assignment is currently the largest floating solar project with the deepest water depth, largest water level fluctuation, and highest underwater elevation difference, according to Sungrow FPV.

Indonesia is the largest energy user in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region. The country is targeting 23% of its energy mix coming from renewables by 2025, rising to 31% by 2030.

The Cirata project is expected to play a strategic role in building Indonesia’s renewable energy production capacity.
