Floating solar is well suited to Asia where available land is limited but there are many hydroelectric dams with existing transmission infrastructure. China has just connected the world's largest floating solar plant at Anhui, which will generate almost 78,000 MW in its first year, while South Korea expects to complete what it claims will become the world's largest floating solar plant delivering 102.5 MW in 2020.

The facility is the first commercially-operated floating solar system on the African continent as well as the largest, at 60kWp.
The first phase of the project also includes the installation of a land-based solar PV system on the farm, allowing the farm to run 90 pct of its cold storage, irrigation and wedding venue facilities off the grid.
In the second phase, battery packs will be added to the current set up, removing the estate from the main power grid completely. (Source: Capetown ETC, Mar., 2019) Contact:

Together the firms aim to install 100MW of distributed solar PV by the end of 2018 and 500MW by 2021. They will also collaborate on efficiency management using LEDs and green energy trading projects in Singapore as well as providing decentralized energy in industrial parks, according to a Linyang release.
The MoU covers: six areas requiring an investment of more than $500 by 2020.
energy efficiency in buildings;
rooftop and floating solar plants; 300MW of n-type double-glass modules;
LED light and energy-saving services;
partnering on Singaporean power trading; and
working on virtual power stations, energy management hosting and micro-grids. The two companies expect to invest a total of $500 million by 2020.

According to Woodbridge, UK-based East Green Energy, the floating solar system provides all the advantages of a ground or roof mounted PV array, although, being more efficient, requires fewer panels to generate the same output. The panels are cooled by the surrounding water, which results in improved power production performance.
