About This Classroom Training

Floating solar represents a relatively new sector, employing innovative technology and expertise related to flotation systems, mooring, and anchoring. The mooring and anchoring of the floatation system are one of the most challenging aspects of this new technology. A mooring system is essential to keep the FSPV array in place with minimum movement based on project tolerances and to maintain sufficient clearance between neighbouring arrays or between an array and other assets (such as pipelines, transformer barges, cables, etc.).  Depending upon the project location, the FSPV mooring system needs to be designed to withstand worse storms and weather conditions for a design life of at least 25 years.

Over the course of 3-days, participants will delve into various aspects of floating solar mooring and anchoring technology, gaining insights into key areas such as mooring system design, different types of mooring technologies, and the challenges associated with mooring and anchoring. Through a combination of theoretical instruction and real-world case studies, participants will explore innovative designs and learn to address site-specific considerations to ensure optimal mooring and anchoring design.

Emphasis will be placed on installation procedures, operation, and maintenance strategies to maximise the lifespan and performance of floating solar systems, with an emphasis on health, safety, and environmental (HSE) risk assessment to mitigate potential hazards. The course will also cover environmental impact assessments and mitigation strategies aimed at minimising the ecological footprint of installations. Navigating international standards and local guidelines is crucial for project success, and participants will explore relevant design codes, international standards, and local regulations, incorporating lessons learned and best practices to ensure alignment with project requirements.

This course will be delivered face-to-face over 3 days, comprising of 8 hours per day, 1 hour lunch and 2 breaks of 15 minutes per day. Course Duration: 24 hours in total, 24 CPD points. This course can also be delivered through Virtual Inspector Led Training (VILT).



By the end of this 3 days training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand various mooring and anchoring technologies used in floating solar projects.
  • Explore the design principles and considerations for mooring systems.
  • Recognise challenges associated with mooring and anchoring in floating solar installations.
  • Analyse case studies to comprehend site-specific designs in mooring and anchoring.
  • Gain insights into the installation, operation, and maintenance procedures for floating solar systems.
  • Outline general health and safety protocols, including HSE risk assessment, in floating solar projects.
  • Assess the environmental impact of floating solar installations through impact assessment and explore mitigation strategies to minimise their environmental footprint.
  • Familiarise with international and local guidelines for the design and analysis of floating solar projects.
  • Acquire knowledge of relevant design codes, best practices, and lessons learned in floating solar implementation.
