Banja Floating Solar Plant

In the frame of the Devoll Hydropower Project in Albania, Statkraft is developing an innovative solar floating project in the Banja reservoir.

The pilot project of the Banja Floating Solar Plant started implementation in 2020 and is planned to be completed in 2021.

Banja Floating Solar Plant is comprised of four floating units of 0.5 MWp each with a total installed capacity of 2 MWp. The floating units are anchored on the Banja reservoir, near the dam of the Banja hydropower plant. Each floating unit of 70 metre in diameter is comprised of a floating polyethylene ring pipe and an impermeable membrane, in which the solar panels are mounted.

The project is being implemented in cooperation with the Norwegian company Ocean Sun and with Albanian local contractors.

The planned investment of this project is approx. 2 million Euro.
