PV power plant Azuma Kofuji

The largest solar park built by the Japanese JUWI Shizen Energy joint venture to date.
Fukushima City
100 MW
107 million kWh
Annual yield

A special location

The solar park is located in Fukushima Prefecture, about 80 kilometers from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor. There, in March 2011, an earthquake and a tsunami triggered core meltdowns in several reactor units, resulting in one of the largest nuclear disasters in history.

We are very pleased to have completed and handed over the large-scale Azuma Kofuji project on time. This emphasizes our high level of competence, professionalism and experience as a reliable EPC partner.

The project

Construction of the Azuma Kofuji solar park began in August 2020, and the first kilowatt-hour of clean electricity was fed into the grid at the end of September 2022.

The project covers an area of approximately 186 hectares, most of which consists of abandoned farmland. The development of renewable energy power plants on unused former agricultural land is encouraged by the Japanese government. The solar park generates around 107 million kilowatt hours of climate-friendly electricity every year. This corresponds to the average consumption of around 31,000 Japanese households.

The result of a good cooperation

The Azuma Kufuj solar park is the largest single project to date by Juwi Shizen Energy – the joint venture founded in 2013 between the German project developer JUWI and the Japanese developer of wind and solar parks Shizen Energy. The results of this cooperation are impressive: The project volume implemented since the company was founded in 2013 has increased to a total of 602 megawatts with this project and a further 140 megawatts of solar capacity are currently under construction.
