Kyocera to supply modules for two Japanese plants



Kyocera will supply 3MW of its multicrystalline silicon solar modules for two of Tohoku Electric Power’s upcoming developments in central Japan. Construction of the 2MW Shichigahama and 1MW Hachinohe plants will get underway this month and be completed in January 2012.

The Sendai Solar Power Plant in the Miyagi prefecture town of Shichigahama is expected to generate around 2,100MWh of electricity per annum, while the Hachinohe Solar Power Plant in Hachinohe, Aomori will produce 1,600MWh.

Tohoku’s installations are just two of around 30 large-scale solar power plants that are scheduled to be built in Japan by 2020 – adding 140MW to the country’s solar capacity – and Kyocera will be module supplier for seven of these.
