Egat (Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand) has built what they are claiming to be the world’s biggest floating solar farm on a reservoir at Sirindhorn Dam in Ubon Ratchathani province.

The facility is 82% complete and expected to be operational by June after delays due to covid from their initial goal of December 2020.

Egat’s floating solar farm has a capacity of 45 megawatts (45 million watts) and works in tandem with a hydropower generation system to create a unique, hybrid renewable energy facility.

The facility sits on a water footprint of 72 hectares (450 Rai).

Egat has committed to building more floating solar farms alongside modern energy storage techniques over the next 20 years.
