MANUFACTURER OF PONTOONS AND MARINA EQUIPMENT " An innovative installation producing renewable energy, designed and built with the specialists in floating structures" The Canoe Brook solar energy power plant has been in operation since summer 2011, and the energy produced there is set to power a New Jersey water treatment plant. The objective of this floating solar system when fully set up and in operation is thus to generate 136,000 kWh of energy each year. To make this happen, a partnership has been established between Eneractive Solutions (energy solutions), Seaflex (anchorage) and Poralu Marine (floating platforms). Through its Canadian subsidiary, Poralu Marine, a manufacturer of equipment for nautical infrastructures, was able to provide comprehensive solutions to the project’s many constraints: budget, stability, longevity, resistance to ice and reduced maintenance. Solar energy is central to my reflections about the future of our environment. I have confidence in the quality of Poralu Marine’s R&D services to continue innovating and providing new processes.
