Singapore: One Of The Largest Floating Solar Parks In The World Opens Its Doors And Reduces Co2 Emissions.

The fight against CO2 emissions and the choice of clean and sustainable energy are fundamental and increasingly important challenges today. They concern us all, and the possibility of living and leaving to posterity a cleaner planet, less affected by the disproportionate and reckless use of its resources.

That is why any attempt in this direction is commendable, especially when it comes to ambitious and large-scale projects like the one we are going to tell you about. The solar floating parks are not new, it is true, but one that was opened in Singapore is truly a “giant” of the sector, can appear alone among the largest in the world. For this reason, it deserves to be discovered more closely.

122,000 panels, on a field the size of 45 football fields, for a peak power of 60 megawatts. These figures clearly show that the huge floating solar park designed and commissioned in Singapore is a truly revolutionary structure capable of making a concrete contribution to CO2 reduction.

It is located in the Tengah Reservoir , and was inaugurated by Sembcorp Industries, in collaboration with the National Water Agency of the Eastern Country. Its objectives are ambitious: the solar park will be an integral part of increasing solar energy by 2025.

And since the small island state does not have enough space to install such items, it turned to waterways . And that’s not all: aware of the fact that it is one of the countries responsible for the greatest carbon dioxide emissions in Asia, he understood the need to take concrete measures, also to stem the global climate crisis. , and this amazing “solar farm” seems to be an answer.

According to the promoters of the project, using this colossal facility to produce energy will be equivalent to taking about 7,000 cars off the road , which will reduce CO2 emissions by about 32 kilotons per year. The floats used in the Singapore solar park are made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) , a robust, recyclable, corrosion and UV resistant material.

In short, innovations like this show us that it is possible and right to believe in the resources that the Earth offers us, without necessarily harming it.
