Japan: 20 Megawatt Solar Farm Commissioned

20 megawatt solar farm in Japanese prefecture Kagoshima produces clean energy for 6.000 households.


Juwi Shizen Energy Inc., the Joint Venture between German energy specialist juwi and the Japanese Shizen Group, has successfully commissioned a 20 megawatt solar farm. The plant is situated on a former golf course close to the city of Kirishima in the south of the Japanese islands.
 
juwi Shizen Energy Inc. took over EPC services (Engineering, Procurement and Construction). All in all, about 77.000 modules were used for the PV power plant. Thus, the solar farm produces approximately 21.000 megawatt hours of clean solar energy per year. This is enough to supply 6.000 Japanese households with clean electricity.

After commissioning, the park was handed over to an integrated facility company affiliated with an energy supplier. “This project shows that renewable energies are widely accepted by the public and big corporations in Japan,” says Takayuki Kasama, project developer at juwi Shizen Energy Inc.

Juwi Shizen Energy Inc. will be taking over Operations & Maintenance for the solar plant as well.
