Anchoring for floating solar panels

Growers worldwide face the challenge of finding creative solutions for efficient energy generation in limited available space. Genap, in collaboration with ZonopWaterbassin, developed an innovative concept of floating solar panels that can be installed on water reservoirs (based on our semi-enclosed Genafloat® system) thanks to an integrated anchoring system. This ensures that the solar island is stable and securely attached while also covering the water.


  • Dual utilisation of the surface area: water storage and electricity generation.
  • Solid, integrated Genap anchoring system
  • A new embankment liner as part of the anchoring system
  • Separate anti-algae cover no longer needed
  • The entire system eliminates water evaporation and algae formation
  • Also suitable for installation in a full water reservoir
  • Maximum yield thanks to the high-efficiency solar panels
