The fishing island of Sibutu in Tawi-tawi Province will be the first fishing community with a floating solar farm intended to power ice-making and cold storage equipment in the area. This is a project between Aboitiz Power, Regional Directors of the Department of Agriculture, and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources. The Floating Solar Farm prototype will be funded by the DA-BFAR with an estimated cost of PHP20-million and is expected to be completed in four months.

P20 Million
The project will cost P20 million and is expected to be completed in four months.
This new technology, which is employed by solar power generation companies so as to minimize the use of valuable lands, is now being introduced in the Philippines by the Norwegian company SN Power in partnership with Aboitiz Power.

How It Looks Like
The partner companies have established the first prototype in Magat Dam, Isabela which is capable of generating 200MW. Photo below is a floating solar power apparatus that is in operation in Ramon, Isabela. A similar system is proposed for Tawi-tawi.
