Dutch engineers are constructing the largest floating solar power plant in the world, which will consist of 15 islands. The plant is being built on the Andijk reservoir in north Holland. Each island will contain 73,500 sun-tracking solar panels that can turn to face the sun.
Similar solar power plants are already in place in China, the UK and Japan. But it is in Holland where the world’s largest floating solar power plant is going to be constructed.

The first phase of the project, involving three islands, each of which will be 140 meters in diameter, is due to be finished by November, 2019.
