This 1.6 MW project, located in northwest Tokyo, is the first of several different large-scale PV plants that IBC SOLAR will construct in Japan within the next months.
For the new PV plant, IBC SOLAR will be providing the module IBC PolySol 255 CS with a 25-year linear power performance warranty. A remote monitoring system designed by IBC SOLAR will keep track of the energy yields of the park. Grid connection is planned for September 2014.
“As one of the oldest PV players worldwide, IBC SOLAR will bring invaluable experience and expertise to the Japanese photovoltaic market,” Udo Möhrstedt, CEO and founder of IBC SOLAR AG, stated.
The construction of a second solar park of 2.3 MW in Sakura, located north of Tokyo, is expected to start in the second half of May 2014. Sakura will be the first of a range of large-scale projects which IBC SOLAR will develop in Japan.
