TMK Hydroenergy Power develops first floating PV system in Romania

Romania’s TMK Hydroenergy Power, a subsidiary of Evryo Group, formerly CEZ Romania has developed the first floating photovoltaic system in partnership with Innovation Norway. The location chosen is the Grebla hydropower plant which already produces over 1 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green energy annually.

The pioneering initiative marks a significant step towards a sustainable future, through the simultaneous exploitation of solar energy and water in an innovative way.

“The energy will be used for internal consumption,” commented Liviu Gavrila, Chief Generation Officer at Evryo. “It is a pilot project that we believe will prove its effectiveness and we want it to be replicated. The energy capacity produced may not be impressive, 1 megawatt (MW) compared to the many GW of green energy needed at the moment. However, the project […] fully supports our commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040.”

Once put into operation, it will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 5,000 tonnes over the next five years.
