Isolux Corsan has commissioned its first solar PV project in Takayama, Japan, standing at 31.2MW capacity.

The Gunma plant in Takayama is owned by Grupo T-Solar and required €90 million (US$98 million) investment. It will generate 34GWh per year, enough to power the equivalent of 15,000 residents. It was built within a period of 15 months.

The project, built on a former golf course, spans 82 hectares and has 100,638 solar panels installed along with 26 power stations.

Isolux Engineering, the Japanese branch of Isolux Ingenieria, performed EPC services.

Isolux has a total capacity of 766MW of deployed solar, while Grupo T-Solar has an installed capacity of 316MW under construction and operation in Spain, Italy, India, Peru, US and Japan.
