End of Project:
Ongresso Energy is a Swiss company specialized in energy production and innovative solutions integrating solar power. The combined experience of its team members in project development, civil, environmental and energy engineering guarantees a strong base for the design as well as the implementation of the project in Colombia.
Colombian fresh flower producers are willing to produce some of their electricity locally and in a sustainable way. After studying the local context, floating photovoltaics (FPV) appeared like the most suitable solution. One first production site was selected to test a FPV installation of 475 kWp on an irrigation pond. In order to make the FPV solution economically viable and create local jobs, the project aims to partially localize the value chain (e.g. by producing the floating devices locally). This will pave the way for a sustainable replication of the FPV solution in the longer run.
