Tractebel plans to build 30 MW of floating solar projects at the Batalha hydropower project in Brazil

Belgian engineering firm Tractebel, a unit of French energy giant Engie, plans to build three floating solar arrays with 30 MW of capacity at the 52.2 MW Batalha hydropower project owned by Brazilian state-run power company Eletrobras Furnas. The Batalha PV plants I, II and III will consist of 90,900 solar panels. The Batalha hydropower plant is located on the São Marcos River, in the central Brazilian state of Goiás. The modules and floating mounting structures could help reduce evaporation from water reservoirs in Brazil in times of drought while also improving electricity supply.
