In 2009, while visiting the tiny islands of the Maldives, we got inspired to create a floating solar solution that would take the solar power beyond the limitations of land. In 2014, after more than four years of research in cooperation with the Vienna University of Technology and the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany, we launched the world’s first floating solar power plant for the sea – SolarSea. Moreover, we succeeded in making it less expensive than diesel-generated electricity.
Today, Swimsol is the leading solar energy company in the Maldives and a global leader in offshore (marine) photovoltaics. We are experts in island micro-grids and heavy-duty tropical solar PV systems.
