Grace Solar has announced it is to supply its mounting system solution to a project in Mie-Ken, Honshu Island, Japan.
The project is expected to cutover during April 2021, generating some 80 million kWh of electricity and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by around 65,000 tons each year.
The project site presented numerous challenges for the Grace Solar design team, strong winds and heavy snow loads combining with foundation issues and East-West and North-South slopes of more than 20 degrees.
The team designed a new product model die cast to calculate the best angle to give maximum stability and the company’s ultimate solution greatly reduced installation costs and time on-site, an aspect which drew great recognition and praise from both the project end user and EPC contractor.
GraceSolar has been working in the Japanese market for more than ten years and has built hundreds of MW Solar projects. As the largest supplier of solar mounting systems in Japan, the company is committed to contributing to the implementation of the country’s zero-carbon goal.
