    All of floating solar power systems are wonderful ideas. And it’s very important to maintain effectively same direction and position on the water for floating solar plants. Because directional change of solar panels reduces electricity production. Azimuth and position change of floating solar plants caused by wind, waves and external forces. Restoring Force Strengthened Mooring System for floating solar plants has been created in South Korea. This Mooring System generates Restoring Force immediately when floating solar plants are being rotated or moved on the water. In addition, you have to reduce vibration to install floating solar plants. Because, it can make micro-cracks to floating solar panels and the durability problem of floating solar plants. New Type Floating Body Stabilizer has been created in South Korea. They generate drag force immediately when floating solar plants are being rolled, pitched and yawed on the water. You can see them in Ochang Dam, South Korea. I N I World.
