SolarDuck is thrilled to announce a groundbreaking cooperation with RWE, one of the leading offshore renewable energy developers globally.

In this agreement RWE invests in the deployment of SolarDuck’s full-scale offshore pilot in the North Sea. Next, SolarDuck was selected as exclusive provider for offshore floating solar PV technology with integrated storage in RWE´s bid for offshore wind park Hollandse Kust West in the Netherlands. Furthermore, RWE and SolarDuck agree to explore and develop offshore floating solar parks in identified key markets in Europe.

This collaboration agreement accelerates the transition of SolarDuck’s offshore floating solar technology towards bankable, commercial technology and speeds up the roll-out of this exciting new technology globally.

SolarDuck’s CEO Koen Burgers states: “The need for secure, sustainable and affordable energy demands new and immediate answers from the industry in Europe and also globally. SolarDuck is part of this answer, allowing for solar deployments at sea opening up an exciting new market. Showcasing SolarDuck’s robust technology in rough North Sea conditions will enable us to deploy the technology practically anywhere in the world. We are very pleased that we found in RWE a strong partner who shares our vision of electrifying the world with offshore floating PV. I look forward to our organizations working together to achieve just that.”
