Having already announced that it will ship approximately 12MW of its a-Si thin-film modules for use in Japan-based projects this year, NexPower Technology Corporation has said that the first project in Kansai, Japan has started construction. The 200kW power system is the first to use its 160W modules in the country, according to the company. NexPower’s Japanese distributor is Marubun Corporation.
“NexPower thin-film modules have a rare positive power tolerance from -0 to +3%, which is also a major reason for NexPower’s recent success in the Japanese market,” stated Arthur Chou, CEO of NexPower Technology Corporation.
The Kansai project is expected to be completed and grid-connected in the first half of 2012.
