Premium HDPE Floaters for solar energy installations

The custom moulding business from Rotovia provides premium HDPE Floaters based on the customer’s requirements. One of the markets Rotovia is very active in is the renewable energy market. One of the segments in this market is solar energy. In this market HDPE floaters are deployed for long-term use, especially for modern floating photovoltaic installations. Thanks to the fantastic rotational moulding process, we can create plastic floaters with an extremely strong structure and unique hollow shape.

Hollow structure of the plastic floater

The material used in the production of the floaters is extremely durable, which makes these products very strong and reliable in long-term use. Polyethylene plastic floaters are perfect for equipping floating farms in reservoirs, as well as coastal marine conditions. The modular design of the floaters provides great opportunities for their application, both under a floating photovoltaic (PV) panel system and as floating marinas and service piers.

At present, solar energy plays a key role among renewable sources for heat and electricity generation. The application of our fully recycled plastic floaters in floating PV systems is the best choice for this type of installation, and, in addition, it fits in very well with current eco trends.

Benefits of HDPE floaters

The rotomoulded floaters that Rotovia produces have some unique qualities:

  • Low weight, which makes installation easy;
  • High resistance to damage, corrosion, and UV radiation;
  • The wall thickness is uniform;
  • Perfect floating characteristics.

Lightweighted hollow plastic floaters

Our premium plastic floaters are manufactured from the highest quality high-density polyethylene (HDPE) for its strength and durability in bodies of water no matter how rough. As a result, the plastic floaters manufactured through our rotational moulding process offer several great benefits: they are corrosion-free and extremely resistant to rupturing, mechanical damage, or UV radiation. An important advantage of plastic floaters is that they are lightweight, which facilitates their transportation, storage, and installation. On the other hand, the uniform thickness of the product’s walls significantly contributes to their solidity, stability and durability.

Fully customised to your requirements

The way Rotovia serves customers revolves around early supplier involvement. By jumping in the process at an early stage, we can aid our customers in properly developing and designing the plastic floaters, tailored to their needs. This results in a faster development and production period as wella s an improved product experience as we can then make the HDPE floaters entirely compatible with your floating PV system. Given the flexibility of our rotomoulding process, we can fully customise the floaters to meet individual customer requirements, both in terms of shape and size.

Your floaters, our concern

At Rotovia we use both our expertise in the designing stages of your floatation device, as well as the machinery necessary for the stress-free, high-quality rotation of the polyethylene to create the uniform wall thickness of the product. What this means is that, after you get in touch with our team, we can combine forces to create the most optimal product for your cause. For any further questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.
