Solar energy provider Sunseap Group, Singapore has installed offshore floating solar farms in Johor Straits. It is one of the world’s largest offshore floating solar farms which is expected to produce around 6,022,500 kWh energy per year.

The project involves the installation of over 13,000 panels, 40 inverters, and more than 30,000 floats. It has the potential to offset 4,258 tons of carbon dioxide. Movement restrictions due to the pandemic caused delay in the project and the floating solar farms took close to a year to be set up. Other challenges include volatility of the open sea, the requirement to avoid shipping routes, and the presence of barnacles.
