The Heliofloat is a brilliant and highly advanced new flotation system, developed by a group of engineers and scientists working out of the Vienna University of Technology in Austria, that is designed to make it possible for floating solar panels to be deployed on even the heaviest and roughest of seas.

This floating solar panel system makes use of open-bottom floats that can withstand rough seas.

Solar energy has shown to be a fantastic and sustainable way to harness energy, but the problem is that there isn't always land available that's suitable for solar panel structures. The Heliofloat makes it possible to deploy floating solar panel out on the vast oceans, making it possible to harness the bountiful solar energy available there.
