Gravity Anchors for Floating Solar

Gravity Anchors for Floating Solar

Sun. Sea. A Powerful Combination.

Floating photovoltaic systems are a rapidly growing avenue for clean power generation offshore and on inland water bodies.

Floating solar plants avoid land-use conflicts, increase solar panel efficiency, and can even conserve water. But anchoring these systems in vast bodies of water poses some challenges. Traditional gravity or dead-weight anchors, while simple in concept, come with their own set of drawbacks in terms of weight, material usage and shipping logistics.

Introducing: 3DCP Anchors for Floating Solar

 Sperra has pioneered a groundbreaking solution to the weighty challenges of anchoring these systems: 3D Concrete Printed (3DCP) Gravity Anchors. Our patented approach meets the unique demands of solar installations on water, offering unparalleled advantages.

Optimized Design

Engineered with precision, Sperra Gravity Anchors have a streamlined design that increases efficiency while minimizing material usage. Our approach ensures robust anchoring performance without unnecessary bulk, driving cost savings over the life of the project.
