East-west solution: 600 m².; South-facing solution: 850 m².

Of course, as for all specialist applications. The structures have been designed for rapid and low-cost assembly and disassembly, using a modular and efficient construction (cluster) model, in such a way as to be suitable both for small and large installations.

It can be installed on the floating structure itself, rather than on land, but this will depend on the design choices and the context in which the photovoltaic system will be installed. From a technical point of view, there are no restrictions.

In general, yes. Initially, it is advisable to carry out a chemical and physical analysis of the reservoir waters in order to determine the quality of the water and to avoid damaging the photovoltaic modules over time.

Considering the type of materials used, i.e., corrugated polyethylene, galvanised steel, stainless steel, and aluminium, the approximate lifetime is 30 years.

The materials used are: corrugated polyethylene, galvanised steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
These are 100% recyclable materials and do not release any toxic or environmentally harmful substances during their life cycle.

Most of the components of a solar module can be reused. Thanks to the technological innovations of recent years, up to 95% of some semiconductor or glass materials, as well as large quantities of ferrous and non-ferrous metals used in photovoltaic modules, can be recovered.
There are private companies and non-profit organisations, such as PV CYCLE in the European Union, that collect and recycle such materials at the end of the module’s life cycle.
From a standard module of 21 kg, about 15 kg of glass, 2.8 kg of plastic, 2 kg of aluminium, 1 kg of silicon powder and 0.14 kg of copper can be recovered.


HydroSolar was among the beneficiaries of the “Seed Money Fund” in the Province of Trento. Out of over 130 applications for grants, only the first 33 were considered eligible for funding, including HydroSolar.
