Swimsol is a global leader in marine floating solar system development. We aim to bring affordable and durable solar systems to the world’s tropical regions, where space on land is limited. Therefore, we develop special heavy duty, high performance solar PV systems for extreme climatic conditions. We offer floating solar energy solutions both for the sea and for the inland waters. Together with our partners and shareholders, we have worked in the European rooftop solar industry for 20 years, completed over 500 solar systems and installed more than 100 MWp of solar power.

In 2009, we visited the island nation of Maldives, composed of 1196 islands, with few islands larger than 1 square kilometre. Sunshine here is plentiful, yet there is little space for solar panels on the islands. To solve this problem, the idea of SolarSea™ crystallised, as we envisioned solar panels floating in the lagoons of Maldives.
In 2014, after more than four years of research in cooperation with the Vienna University of Technology and the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany, we launched SolarSea™ in the Maldives. Currently, our subsidiary Swimsol Maldives provides local services and maintenance, supported by our Maldivian partners Riyan and marine experts LaMer Group.Our mission is to provide solar energy at low cost over a long lifetime.
