HelioRec has established a partnership with EMP ROTOMOULAGE, a company dedicated to rotational molding techniques, with the aim of spearheading the production of floating solar systems in the Bretagne region.

HelioRec, who has developed a floating solar system whose compact design makes it easy to transport and set up, said that the strategic alliance marks a significant milestone in the company’s expansion plans throughout France and Europe.

With over 30 years of experience in rotomolding, EMP brings a wealth of expertise and innovation to the table and this new partnership aims to focus on continuous research and development and push the boundaries of innovation, leveraging collective expertise, resources, and insights, the company said.

According to HelioRec, the Bretagne region, renowned for its breathtaking coastline and abundant water bodies, serves as the perfect backdrop for this pioneering venture and the company’s presence in Bretagne underscores its commitment to local communities.

“Our partnership with EMP ROTOMOULAGE marks an exciting chapter in HelioRec’s journey towards sustainable innovation,” said HelioRec’s CEO Polina Vasilenko“Together, we are not only revolutionizing the floating solar industry but also paving the way for a greener, more resilient future.”

HelioRec also recently became a member of the Cluster Maritime Français (CMF) which provides a dynamic platform for networking, sharing expertise, and driving sustainable growth in the blue economy.

“As a leading player in nearshore floating solar technology, joining CMF aligns perfectly with our commitment to fostering collaboration and innovation within the maritime industry,” HelioRec said. “By leveraging the resources and opportunities offered by CMF, we are eager to contribute to shaping the French maritime presence and exploring new horizons in sustainable and responsible blue growth.”

HelioRec’s floating solar system is accompanied by a machine learning system said to help improve efficiency in power generation operations and maintenance efforts.

The system also features a ‘hydro-lock’ feature, which keeps water inside the floater to give additional mass and, consequently, additional stability while avoiding extra costs from other materials for ballasting, such as metal and concrete.

The start-up company in October 2023 completed the installation of a 25 kW floating solar unit in the Port of Brest which is used for demonstrating the different technologies employed in its newest floating solar model.
