About this event

There is a growing trend in the world to deploy floating solar photovoltaic (FPV) on reservoirs and ponds overseas to tackle the challenges under climate change. In February 2017, Water Supplies Department (WSD) installed Hong Kong’s first FPV system at the Shek Pik Reservoir and received positive comments from the public.  Apart from harvesting renewable energy from the sun, there are additional benefits of installing such systems over the reservoir surface, which include reducing water evaporation, suppressing algae growth, saving precious land resources and yielding a higher solar panel power generation efficiency. Subsequently, WSD installed the second set of FPV system with a designed capacity of 100kW at Plover Cove Reservoir in October 2017 for supplying electricity to the nearby pumping station.


The purpose of the technical visit is to allow members of the institution to familiar with the design principle and the construction methodology of the floating photovoltaic system in Hong Kong, as well as the operation and maintenance strategy for the system.
