Short summary
Sustainable operation of floating solar platforms requires knowledge of effects on the marine ecosystem. We modelled effects on water flow and algae growth in a coastal sea. Algae growth was reduced depending on the local currents and on the density of coverage with platforms. The model represented platforms distributed evenly over areas of hundreds of square kilometres. For smaller-scale cases, effects may be smaller, and for more detailed understanding, three-dimensional models are needed.
