Germany, September 8th – A research project has been started by TNO, a Dutch independent organization. Three 50kwp floating solar systems will be installed in the Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain.

After an accurate selection, TNO has chosen Texel4Trading and SolarFloat to build the Dutch floating PV plant.  ZNShine Solar will contribute to the research project in the Netherlands in collaboration with Texel4Trading and SolarFloat, providing half-cell light-weight double glass modules with Graphene Coating technology.

The research will take place at the Fieldlab Green Economy Westvoorne of the Oostvoornse Lake. The electrical performance and ecological effects will be tested for a year and the results will be shared with local knowledge institutions and organizations willing to invest in solar energy.

Floating solar systems are smart and cost-effective methods to improve and contribute to the green energy revolution.  PV panels can be installed on unused areas of water, converting unutilized areas into profitable generators of renewable energy.



ZNShine Solar is a BNEF Tier1 module manufacturer with over 32 years of manufacturing excellence and 5 GW module production capacity. Scored as a Top Performer in the DNV GL PV Module Reliability Scorecard.


TNO conducts independent and internationally leading research and stands for agenda-setting, initiating, and supporting role for government, industry, and NGOs. TNO’s innovation programs are aligned with the energy agenda and the coalition agreement with the aim of accelerating the energy transition and strengthening the competitive position of Dutch companies.


Texel4Trading offers a selection of PV systems and green energy solutions, providing also design and installation service of their proprietary floating PV system Solar Float.
